Our internet comes from Virgin (what used to be NTL when we got it installed) and so I'm not sure if it is a standard phone line as it is a separate cable which comes into our house...so I presume it isn't! But from what I've been able to understand ADSL and DSL are affected by different types of line (this is where I get confused!).
Ok, ive read around a bit more and im possibly a little less confused. It seems that the ADSL acts as a modem as well...which if its true means i wil need only a DSL beacuse i already have the NTL modem...
Hey Rich, it sounds like you have a DSL line coming into your house for internet access, the Linksys that you have is actually just a router/swich that allows you to share your internet connection.
All you really need is a wireless access point to plug into your router/swich; you can save a few bucks by going with a b/g model instead of an N model.
If you want to keep things simple I'd suggest buying a router/switch with built in wireless and ditching the Linksys that you have. It will be only slightly more expensive than a separate wireless access point.
Just got the WRG160N from PC world now, priced at £80 in store but £55 on net and they were only too glad to take the £25 off for me! Seems to work fine and the laptop is easily as fast as my desktop which is wired.
