Hello there, my friend has a problem with their current AOL speedtouch router, so i wish to pick up a router from Argos 2morrow, the router is here

click here

But when i check the reviews, it mentions that some of the customers using it are virgin media cable customers. I'm after an ADSL router, as my friends ISP is AOL, and i dont wanna buy the wrong wireless router. My budget is £35. if this router is not correct pls point me in the direction of currys or pc world where i can pick up 1 tomorrow for my friend pls. IT MUST BE AN ADSL ROUTER PLEASE, AS ITS AOL VIA A BT LINE!!!!!!

This is a cable router so not what you want. I can't advise on specific routers but suggest that, if you have a Maplins locally, they are well worth a call and will guide you.

Any Modem/router will do I lean towards Linsys but others will say different.

Sorry their site is closed at the moment but it is Argos modem/routers in their search

Though any router will do, if your friend wants to be sure of AOL tech support, get one of the routers they list on their site. I recently got myself a Netgear DG834G router to use with AOL.
