New ADSL old Network

  jay123 11:16 28 Jan 2005

We are being upgraded to the BT ADSL 512kbps service on monday, we already have a home network in place using a netgear router. Our old ISP did not require s modem so we have a bare router without a modem. To access the ADSL service we need a modem, the one suplied my BT is a USB device and i'd rarther not have one of the PC's permanatly on so the USB device is a bit useless, i've contacted bt and they dont do any other modems.
I've looked at networkable ADSL modems but there seams to be a very limited selection, the other option is to replace my router.
Sugestions of products/solutions would be apretiated.

click here D-Link DSL-300T Ethernet ADSL Modem

It would appear you are looking only for an adsl modem to plug into your exisiting router?

I am sure ebuyer will have manu click here but the site is down for maintenance at the moment - you could also buy a combined adsl modem/router which will simply replace your existing router

I assume you have a wired network?

Yes it is a wired network. I was hopeing not to have to replace the router as it is less than 6 months old. I'd looked at the D-link modem but the reviwes sugested it doesnt like working with netgear routers.

Personally I would just bite the bullet and get a new adsl modem/router - there will be no conflicts - the origo one at ebuyer gets good customer reviews

I have also installed a couple of dlink wireless adsl routers lately and have been very impressed with the dlink kit.
