Will This Work?

I have NTL Broadband, which i use on my desktop, but now I have a laptop with Wifi.
I bought a D-LINK DSL-904 Modem/router. which has an ADSL port and 4 Ethernet ports. I tried connecting my modem into one of the Ethernet ports and and one going back to my desktop. I then tried to connect via my laptop and the modem came up with good signal. But the internet would not work. the router also came with a USB adapter which i tried in my desktop, and that worked briefly. I also could not access the control panel.
Could anyone suggest a solution or an alternative router

Are you running cable broadband on NTL?

If so, you just need a cable router to go with the modem supplied by the ISP.

D-link DSL 904 seems to be a ADSL modem/router.

that's designed to connect directly to an ADSL telephone line - you can't plug an NTL cable modem into it.

click here this is the one that I use on my NTL Broadband and it was very easy to setup and works well even in the house opposite when I take my Laptop over.
