I thought we had already established that you would be better off with your own choice of ADSL modem/router.

If you are only 13 years old, then presumably it is your parents who pay for your internet connection. If they are not prepared to buy you a router, then perhaps you should get a paper round or something and save up some money. The cheapest *decent* routers are around £45.

You don't need to spend £60:

I've just got the wired equivalent which cost under £25 including delivery, the Extra Value 2 Port ADSL and ADSL2/2+ Modem Router with SPI Firewall, but it's gone up by £3 plus VAT since last week...:-)

13? It's way past your bedtime ;-)

Nonetheless, there's no harm asking your mam & dad if you can wash the car, tidy up the garden, etc for a bit of extra cash (agree the sum in principal first ;-), you'll often find parents quite generous when it comes to the the jobs they hate doing, I did ;-)

There's also no harm in asking the neighbours the same thing, so long as you have your mam and dads permission.

I was always an entrepreneur from age 7 upwards, lol.

Not a legitimate basis on which to return an item that you have opened, played around with and then, because you are apparently unaware of what you should do, would expect PC World to take back.

Not a very upright or moral stance to adopt, whatever your age.

yer i no but they won't come round and install it for me will they so they can't expect every costumer to no what there doing, hopefully i do know how to set 1 up so ill go and buy a belkin 7632uk ,ade.h said there easy to set up and he knows alot about networking.

"so they can't expect every customer to no what there doing", but places like PC World do, and if not, then ask before you purchase the item. Setting up can be very easy to those that have set many of this type of equipment up. It's when a unit is either faulty or proving more difficult, that you need further help and advice from PC World, this or a similar help forum or website.
