There are two options open to you with Option 1 less space required a must neater install and minimum wiring Option 2 you have to set up both modem and router, two power supply unit extra wiring etc

Option 1

Replace your present modem with a wireless modem/router a fresh install is required

Sample of type of unit

D-Link AirPlus G 54Mbps Wireless ADSL2/2+ Router with 54Mbps USB Adapter

Option 2

Purchase a Cable /DSL router and connect to your present modem via the Ethernet cable

From what I know of Tiscali broadband the supplied ADSL modems are USB connected devices, if so you are not able to connect this to a Cable/DSL router as in(option 2)

If the modem is connected via usb the only option you have is option 1
