[access-uk] Re: long shot aboout Router

Hi Andy,

It would be a seriously great help if we knew exactly what
make and model of router you have.

For example, I have a Draytek Vigor 2600G.  This is not only
a wired router, it is also wireless router. Moreover, it is
an ADSL/Broadband modem.

So with one single box.  One cable goes from this to the
Broadband telephone point.  I have four "ports" into which
PCs can be connected using a network cable, and any PC with
a wireless card can also "talk" to the device.

George.

Hi again Andrew.


Now I'm really confused.  I was told when I bought the
router that I would have to set aside my old Freeserve usb
external modem as this would be no longer required.

!  So am I right in thinking then the set-up is as follows;


My computer plugged into Freeserve External Modem.
Freeserve External Modem plugged into Router.
Router plugged into telephone point.

Pauline's computer upstairs fitted with wireless card.

Best wishes.

Andy
