So where can I get a modem from then ?

So plusnet have just turned my ADSL connection - very good guys, 7 days as promised.

However - I don't seem to be able to find any store that actually has USB modems in stock. The nice man at Action has just given me a date of 25 May for the one I've got on order...

I don't want to wait that long - anyone help ?

I don't know where you live but if it is in London try Tottenham Court Road where I bought my modem. There were several shops down there that stocked ADSL modems

Try Solwise. 0845 458 4558 or http://www.solwise.co.uk My modem/router arrived the day after I ordered it.

BTW Don't buy a USB modem. Get an Ethernet one instead. They work much better.

I would however go for an ethernet one if you can!!

Pay an extra tenner and get a router!!!

I just bought a Connexant 4 port router for £90 inc vat.

For more info and links to buy.

Also a nice chap in the UK took screenshots of his router configs so that others could set them up.

Hi guys.

Just wondered, seen as PlusNet is based in Sheffield whether you guys (or anyone else for that matter) knew of a good place in Sheffield or surrounding area to get a good, but cheap ADSL modem off the shelf from?

TIA

Sorry, no can do.

ADSL devices don't seem to have hit the high street as yet.

Try the one mentioned above, Action.com also have a good selection and if your unsure you can always look up www.adslguide.org who have some great reviews.

Kind Regards

Kevin
