I am changing from AOL wireless broadband to Telewest Cable broadband and am completely lost on which router would be best.We have 3 laptops and 2 psp consoles and are unsure of what speed router we need so we don't get a slow connection...any ideas?

This would do you Linksys Etherfast Cable/dsl 4-port Router This is not a Modem. Plus I think it as to be all connected by Ethernet wires click here

This is wireless but think you still need a Modem with it click here

You should get a cable modem from Telewest when they install the equipment. You need to get a router that is suitable for a cable modem to plug into. Argos do 3 or 4 suitable models, my son recently went onto NTL and we got a D-Link Air plus G from Argos (£39.99) Set up simple and reportedly working well, he only has one computer and a modded Xbox connected.
