    I'm about to buy an all in one ADSL modem and wireless router... Was
    going to get the Dynamode R-ADSL-C4WG but it is out of stock at eBuyer,
    so I've been looking for alternatives, but half the time can't work out
    which ones are just wireless routers and which ones have a built in ADSL
    modem as well.

    Does anyone have any recommendations on suitable (and as cheap as
    possible) options... I want to order it NOW as I've just received an
    e-mail from PlusNet saying that my Broadband connection has been
    activated..... exciting times!! :)

    I'll be using it in conjunction with a Mac with built in Airport Card
    (802.11g standard) if that makes any difference

    Yeah, that looks OK to me. Have you actually tried one? I guess it works
    OK with a Mac??

    Any others?

    Yes, I have used it and it works fine. Routers are not operating-system
    dependent, so a Mac won't present a problem! There will be others out there
    but that's the only 802.11g all-in-one product I've had experience with, and
    cheaper than most alternatives.

    I bought it from Misco for £77 delivered including a free PCMCIA card but
    they appear to be out of stock at the moment. I'd recommend it.

    Some others that I considered included:

    D-Link DSLG604-T
    Linksys WAG54G
    Belkin F5D7630
    Netgear DG834G
    USRobotics USR019106

    Brilliant, thats what I needed.... I've just been looking at the Belkin
    you suggested. I'll look the others up now... The cheapest so far is
    still the one Dominic recommended... and it has a USB port on it! Never
    heard of the manufacturer though.

    Re Savastore you need to click modems then a manufacturer like Belkin etc I
    have the Belkin F5D7630

    Look at www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk. They very clearly distinguish between the
    ADSL wireless modem/routers and the cable (no ADSL modem) wireless routers.

    routers.

    Would you believe they actually sell a Belkin wireless ADSL Router in Argos

    I'd agree with that one being good.

    But the one Dominic suggested is cheaper (although the price excludes
    VAT) if you don't want the bundled PCMCIA card.

    Hmmm. For the sake of a couple of quid, I think I'd rather go with
    known-name rather than no-name.

    And if, for instance, you choose the D-Link bundle from Misco for £3.82
    more than the no-name suggestion, you can sell the 'free' card on ebay - £20
    seems to be the going rate.

    YMMV EOE etc. etc.

    On Thu, 21 Oct 2004 20:41:15 +0100, in uk.telecom.broadband,

    I set up that Belkin model (bought from Ebuyer, but some months ago
    and the client wanted it fast so didn't hunt high and low for a 50p
    saving :) Works well, supporting his office PC (Dell, using cable)
    and a couple of other PCs using USB wireless adaptors (Belkin's own
    with fairly long cables, which allows for positioning for best sigs)

    Good idea..... I guess I was getting taken in by the print server
    ability on the 'unknown brand'.

    Time to have a good look at what Misco have to offer.

    The unbranded product is often based on the same core as the branded
    product. I've had far more trouble with branded products. The processor in
    the "no-name" router is Samsung anyway.

    Just been looking through the manufacturers forums for the 'no-name'
    (SafeCom) product... Still seems OK... decisions, decisions!
