New ADSL hardware

I've already bought a Netgear DG834G ADSL router. My RFS date is 11th Feb. Will it cause any problems if I were to plug the router in now as I would like to start using the switch part of the router - even go as far as plugging the ADSL line into a phone socket with a splitter?

No there will be no problems doing that

I would think you can use the router part to network your PC's if you wish. There is nothing to stop you doing that, just disable the DSL side so it doesn't keep trying to connect (don't ask me how) and don't plug it into the phone socket/splitter until you are activated..

Everything appears to be OK Cheesy
