Transferring from Cable to TalkTalk

  namtas 12:49 07 Apr 2008

I am considering transferring my broadband from the original NTL, now Virgin to TalkTalk.
At present I have a home network set up using a Linksys BEFW11S4 wireless router connected to the ntl cable modem.
I want to retain the present network that works well.

Can someone advise, can I retain the existing router, presumably connected to a supplied TalkTalk modem - or do I have to purchase a TalkTalk wireless router , and if so does any one have any information on how easy they are to set up as I have heard that they can be impossible for home set up.
