Please could someone help i have broadband with ntl. I have two connections in the house. I know nothing about this things. W e have someone coming to stay with us who will use a bedroom where one of the connection are. He has requested a connection to broadband and the internet.

I use this brand. You can set security up to suit.

Hi Norwich

if your on cable broadband with ntl then you will need a cable router not ADSL.

Hi norwich,if you r on ntl (as i am)i have a belkin 54mbps wireless router,with this u can connect your cable modem to the back of the router(connect the router to the location where the modem is)then connect the router to the computer via a RJ45 cable,then u will need a wireless reciever pci card to put in the pc that your visitor will be using,once this is done run the network wizard on both computers & u can then use both pc's at the same time.
There may probably b an easier way if u have two lines coming into your home but i don't know what.hope this helps.

that connects directly to your NTL modem. This router will then distribute your broadband connection to any computer within range - provided it has a wireless network adapter installed. You can see and/or buy such a router if you

The router I've linked to is a Netgear WGT634U

<<< I am very confused now between cable router and a wireless router could someone explain >>>

You want a "Wireless" router, but when talking about routers suitable for use with Cable broadband (as opposed to ADSL over the phone line) the expression "Cable" router is frequently used. It has to be a stand-alone router that ISN'T combined with an ADSL modem.
