Linking cable router to ADSL router

  madinnit1974 22:42 27 Sep 2009

I use AOL as my ISP and have a Belkin N1 wireless router running through a BT line. I had to buy the N1 router as my Netgear DG834 was not good enough for me to get a good strength signal. I have recently changed my ISP to Virgin Media and they have supplied me with a cable wireless router the Netgear DG834 which I know wont work in my house. Is there any way of linking the cable Netgear router to my Belkin ADSL router so I can get a better wireless signal without having to pay out for another router.

regards Martin

No you need a Cable/DSL Wireless Router

A ASDL wireless router can only connect to a broadband service the phone line using a RJ11 cable

A cable mobon require a Wan port type wireless router to allow you access to the local and Internet

Sample of a cable wireless router

Sorry “A cable mobom” should read “A cable modem”
