Linksys WRT54G - Suitable for PlusNet ADSL connection ?

I have been looking at a router / wireless networking add on for a home environment. I have got confused somewhere along the line between Broadband / DSL and ADSL

I get the impression that a Broadband router will not work on my PlusNet connection but what about a DSL router ?

Is the Linksys WRT54G suitable or is there a suitable alternative at around the same price (£50 - 60) that will give the same features: router, wireless access and wired network access ?

I already have a fully functioning Binatone USB ADSL modem, if that has any relevance in terms of cost saving ....

That does'nt have a modem you'll need an ethernet modem
aswell if you got that, look at the WAG54G that has a modem.
The USB modem is of no use, it needs to be ethernet, you won't be able to get all the features for the price you quoted.

The question has already been answered by aleca. The WRT54G does not have a modem built in, so is just a broadband router (no DSL connection).
What you really need is a wireless modem router such as the Netgear DG834G

There are others modem routers, so search around.

Not bad fot the price. Ring for price stating Plusnet user, we will try to give discount where we can.

I still have one of the original Etec DSL modem routers as a backup. Solid performer for a conexant chipset. No true firewall though.
Are they still in a proper metal box Huh Good if you are in a high radio interference environment like me, although I doubt the wireless side would stand up to it.

LOL - yes, still made from recycled Nissan Sunnys! No expert on the interference front, but what about connecting your "roof Rack" to the wireless side of things?

Sorry for drifting off the topic.

My antenna is the wrong frequency.
Now, if you want to extend the range of the wireless router you can try the setup this fellow Radio Ham has.
