I have been offered free of charge a cable/dsl router,i am unsure if i can use this i dont think i can but would like someone too let me know. It is a linksys model no BEFSR41 ver.2,i am on virgin broadband. Hope someone can help thanks neil
.. may be worth contacting virgin and telling them you may move to another provider who offers a free wireless router.... you may be lucky and they will send you one free of charge if you stay. Works best if your 12 months is coming up :)
Tim, that is a cable/DSL router. For cable connections. PPPoE, not PPPoA. Okay? It might work, provided you have the correct interface; it would require a modem with an RJ45 interface and ADSL/RJ45 modems are very unusual. Conversly, some old routers used to come with a supplementary USB socket to accept USB modems. Likewise, rare.
