Hi,

I have just bought a Sweex nitro 140 xm router (see click here) but can't get it going. Maybe i'm being stupid but i thought the UTP cable would come out of the back, into asdl filter and then into the phone socket. There is no dsl port on the back though, only onn socket marked WAN and 4 marked for LAN. Does this mean i also need to buy a seperate modem? The current modem is a speed touch USB but there is no USB port on the router.

Any help much appreciated!!

hi kev ....
the router you have is for cable use (ntl and the like )dsl.
and from the sound of things you are on adsl,which connects through the phone line.
not compatible ,send it back........Dave.
