my computer(Win 95b) accept a ethernet card (could not find files,managed to
sort it)

I then set about installing the Sar110 router only to find that the lead
supplied with the router(from asdl socket on router(lead fits ok on router)
but other end is nothing like
needed to connect to the phone socket on the wall.

Both ends of the supplied lead look the same.Do I need an adapter of some
sort??
that goes into phone socket that then accepts the asdl lead from router.

The asdl supplied lead is not as wide as normal phone lead but is slightly
deeper.
I have the bog standard white bt square box on the wall.

Starting to think DUN not so bad after all this hassle.
Many thanks.

Use a normal modem cable from adsl modem to wall socket.
The adsl modem dont need a filter to work fine this way, plus
it means everything else is out of the way for testing it.

Except that this may not work, depending on the configuration of the
modem cable. Remember that there are at least 24 different ways it
can be wired (theorectically anyway) but normally it's one of 2
different ways & if that's not correct the DSL modem won't synch as it
won't be electrically connected & then it will be spitting bullets
time as BT has not turned me on etc, which in reality will be caused
by a incompatable modem lead.

Be patient & wait for the correct kit, then start to mix & match after
you've proved the dam thing is working...

Hi Kraftee and all others who replied.

Many thanks for all the advice given,am going to wait for kit.

Did go as far as finding a dial up modem cable but after looking at the end
that plugs into router saw four wires on the plug against two on the cable
that came with the router
so thought no,wait,enough hassle already.

Dreading trying to set the thing up, and in this heat have veeeery large
hammer nearby :-).

Thanks to all.
