getting adsl installed next week and need some advice re: modem/router or combo of the 2. i wouldn't mind a router but don't really need one. all i have is my pc and my xbox. preferably i would like a router modem combination so i could connect both direct. however a adsl usb modem on it's own is a lot cheaper and i can share my internet connection from the pc to the xbox. does anyone have any ideas on this? if i go for the router modem does anyone know of any cheap ones going. i need it by new years eve so an internet purchase maybe out of the question. i'm thinking there must be good sales going on round london.

My advice would be to purchase a combined router/modem for around £60 Check out PC world if you are in a rush
