"...has no means of netting"

Means nothing to me,what are you requiring the Alcatel Speedtouch to do?

I currently have BT Highway which gives me 3 lines. I also have my family using 1 PC, a NotePad and a MAC within my home. But Broadband keeps luring me. Having checked a little, AOL seem to be the best deal (and I'm a member)...Is it a problem to acquire Broadband and get a separate (cheaper router) that would be compatible with AOL..(if there is one) or should I go with BT who charge an arm and a leg for their router...(or anyone else for that matter) anyone have any experiences or ideas?

AOL - Dont do it!!! My daughter upgraded to Silver and hasn't had connection since despite a change of modem and many, many calls to the support line and BT. They will make a mint now that "Free" support is no more. You will be passed from pillar to post until the "techie" says sorry cant help its somebody else's fault.
