This is for using an analog phone off the same line which has
broadband on it.

Are these devices all the same, or are there some which work better
than others?

Any hints much appreciated.


Is this for an ADSL line?

The WRT54G-UK, even if you have seen it described as a "broadband" router
will not work with an ADSL line by itself as it doesn't contain an ADSL
modem.

However, to answer your question - on an ADSL line all the telephones should
be filtered but an ADSL modem/router should not be.

Whoops... what is then needed to make this router work?


Linksys haven't yet released a 54G wireless router with a bulit in modem
(yet) - Netgear have a model called the DG834G so thats the kind of thing
you are looking for.

However, if you already have the WRT54G you would need to attach it to
something which includes a ADSL modem - something like Quickfind code
48448/48449 from http://www.ebuyer.com/

The above are complete "routers" but thank you for the clarification -
I will look for these. Presumably all "broadband" modems are the same,
or does it vary with bandwidth? This is for Plus Net who offer various
speeds from 256 to 2M I think.


Yes, the above are "complete" routers - they are the only type you will find
with an ADSL modem built in - apart from PCI/USB modems but you would not
have a ethernet port for your Linksys with those.

Ideally if possible, it better/cheaper to return what you have and change it
for a All in One wireless adsl router - there are several which include
inbuilt wireless running at 802.11b, though only the DG834G @ 802.11g/54G
at the moment

There is a difference between "broadband" routers and "adsl" modem/routers -
only the latter will work on ADSL lines without an ADSL modem (as its built
in to them)

"broadband" routers are mainly used with Cable Modems

If you have an ADSL modem/router - they should all support up to 8MB.

Sunil
