    netgear router ?

    Was looking at getting the netgear rangemax next

    http://www.morecomputers.co.uk/extra...WNR854T-100UKS

    http://www.dabs.com/productview.aspx...specifications

    on some sites it says 4 port and on others it says 5 ports.

    I mainly wanted to know how am I supposed to tell if it has an inbuilt ADSL2 or ADSL2+ modem and or if this router is more for a cable internet connection such as virgin media ?

    I couldnt really see much info with regards to this side of things and need a bit of enlightment

    Thanks

    I'd say it doesn't have ADSL since its not mentioned.

    Also, a customer says its works fine connected to his NTL modem - implies cable user.

    the 4/5 port discrepency could be that it has 4LAN ports and 1 WAN port.

    Computer says no

    regards

    Yes it's a cable router - so you'll need to connect a cable modem to the wan port

    Nearest you'll get is a DG834N which has built in ADSL/ADSL2+ modem, but no gigabit ethernet..

    Personally am waiting for proper ratified "N" devices.. not too keen on all this proprietry nonsense
