ADSL Modem and Router

  Rustyremi 23:30 26 Nov 2003

Please advise what is best I have just signed up for a broadband connection and cannot decide to take Virgin Nets ADSL modem package and by separate netgear router or go for an all in one Netgear or D-link 4 port ADSL switching router.
I want to network two desktops and two outlet ports for my notebook. My IT skills are basic to moderate in that I successfull built a desk top PC and tinker with componnents but this my first experience into networking,so do I take the virgin package with self install software and netgear router which has 24 hour support line or try to configure the modem myself. Thanks for any help Rusty remi.
