    Hi folks

    my farther-in-law is struggling with a router he bought from a local
    computer shop. He's actually quite a competent PC user but has had no joy
    getting the router to work.

    He's running Win XP and has a wires only ADSL service with an Alcatel
    speedtouch modem. Can someone recommend an easy-to-configure router which
    will pretty much work out of the box?

    many thanks

  3. I've got a Linksys here - WAG54G - router, modem, firewall with 4 port switch, plus
    wireless; and it works beautifully striaght out of the box.

    Well before he splashes out on a new one, maybe if you explain the problem
    someone here can try and help?

    I would agree with that. I found my Speedtouch 510 very easy to get
    working. I purchased the unit from the shop linked to the Speedtouch web
