The D-Link 514 appears to be a stand-alone "Cable/DSL" router suitable for use with the NTL/Telewest Cable broadband service, not ADSL with which you should use a *combined* Router & ADSL Modem. You cannot use a USB ADSL modem in conjunction with a router.

I've got a D-Link DSL-G604T, 4-ethernet port + wireless router. Came with free USB wireless dongle for the remote PC. All works perfectly for well over 18 months.
