I am eagerley awaiting my new PC expected today. When I come to set it up I will be using a Netgear router connected to the tower.
My question is this. Will I need to load the installation disk for Tesco, which is my broadband provider, before loading the Netgear disk or do I not need this anymore? I am not sure whether all I need is the Tesco login information or whether I need their insallation back on the PC as well.
I have assumed a Netgear router with a built in modem but if you are using your old ADSL modem connected to the router then you may need the Tesco CD. Also when I think about it, the Netgear CD only contained instructions and a manual; the actual setup is done after logging into the router from your PC.
Yes I was pleased to discover that this was the case. I was all ready for a battle to get back online as these things always take me ages with lots of swearing, but once everthing was connected I didn't have to do anything!
