    Hi,

    I have a bulldog broadband connection via a speedtouch 330 usb adsl
    modem. This connects to my computer via its usb port. I have recentl
    bought a multifunction wireless router ( innocom wl 540- supports
    PPPoE) .
    Now I cannot figure out how I cann connect my adsl modem (with only usb
    cable for PC) to the router .Is it possible to use the usb adsl modem
    with a wireless router with RJ45 ports??
    All help appreciated.

    If your router (I am not familiar with that one) supports PPPoE that it
    surely includes ADSL modem,
    in which case you connect that directly to your phone line, set up the
    account details and password,
    then connect your computer initially via ethernet patch cable to set up the
    wireless connection.
    If it really is just a router / wifi access point then you would need a
    plain ethernet modem to connect to the phone line e.g. D-Link T300.
    Either way your USB DSL modem is no use with the router.

    Hi,

    I second on Martin's replay!

    Your IT-WL540 Residential Gateway is a broadband gateway combining
    Ethernet network and wireless access point only, No built-in ADSL
    modems.

    In short: you need to get an other ADSL Mdeom ( with Ethernet
    interface) to connect it this gateway.
