Apple Airport Extreme Basestation direct to the BT router? **URGENT**

Hi,
Im just about to go and buy an Apple Airport Extreme Base station to use in place of the Technicolor router. I am right in thinking that i can just connect the apple router direct to the BT router and do away with the technicolor full stop arent i?
The wifi is terrible on the technicolor and was hoping that i could use the apple extreme base station so i have a fast network wifi or not.

Yes, you can.
When you set up the AirPort make sure to choose a "PPPoE" connection, using your username@plusdsl.net and usual password.

Yes exactly right - but you'll add "@plusdsl.net" to the end of it.
Have you looked at the AirPort Express? It's a bit cheaper, absolutely tiny and has the same wireless capabilities as its big brother

The same password you use to log in to your members centre on our website (on www.plus.net where you look after your account etc, not the one for these forums - unless they're the same of course).
