If so, could you tell me what connections/inputs it has on the back? I'm hoping it has 2 ethernet connections, seeing as I want to connect 2 computers via network cards!

Thanks :)

I think, with respect, that you are trying to cross your bridges before you come to them. Wait and see exactly what comes, check the box contents against the packing list and go from there.

I think the router has 4 ethernet ports, plus USB and power. It should come with an A/C adapter, USB cable and a cable to connect the router to the telephone point. This cable can be up to 60 feet long, so you shouldn't have a problem.

Thanks. After looking at a few specs. of the 205 ADSL router it does say that there is only 1 ethernet port. I still can't inderstand why it comes with 2 ethernet cables though?!?

I've just looked at mine (BT Voyager 205) and it has:

1 DSL socket

1 USB socket

1 Ethernet socket

1 Power socket

It came with all the cables for these.

How long was your ethernet cable that was provided? Thanks for the info too :)

I've just tried to measure it but it's difficult because it's all curly and I can't find my blasted tape measure. Anyway, I would guess between 1 and 1.5 metres.

That's far too short but thanks for letting me know anyway. Shall ponder a bit more on it and try and figure out a good setup.

Thanks again :)

Use the USB cable with that.

Then you have to hard wire, what is effectively, a network using a suitable length of cabling.

On the back of the router, is the connection USB A, USB B or some other USB fitting that I've never heard of before?

Thanks :)
