Hi

I was looking at Getting NTL Broadband in. They dont do wireless. They do supply a cable modem and they advised that network does support wireless routers but it must be non ADSL

Any advice on which Non ADSL Router to buy ?

Thanks

as long as it's not a modem/router it should work fine... any of the standard linksys or netgear wireless home routers would work

Anything marked as "DSL Router" will suffice as they will use the modem that NTL have sent you.

Anything with "ADSL Router" marked means it has a router hardwired into it and these only work on BT, Karoo and AOL lines (pain in the backside do to, an AOL line, but possible!)

What you basically do is plug your NTL modem in to an appropriate port on the back (usually the WAN port, though different makes and models vary the labels slightly) and plug the other cable into the modem. From there one can do either wireless or run a network cable from the router to the back of your computer to get online.
