Swap required: 3-Com ADSL wireless modem/router for wirelesss router without modem

Discussion in 'Home Networking' started by Adam Lipscombe, Apr 21, 2006.

  1. Folks,

    I have a brand-new 3com wireless ADSL router that I stupidly bought thinking
    it would work with a telewest connection. It wont (telewest is cable).

    Does anyone want to straight-swap this for a wireless router that doesnt
    have a built in modem? That I can plug into the telewest cable modem?
    54 g preferred. I am in Bristol.

    It doesnt matter if its not new as long as it works well.

    Thanks -Adam

    Wouldnt it work if you turned off the dhcp server, and just used it as a
    switch? I presume the cable modem output is just cat5?

  3. No, because the router will only accept the ADSL interface as the
    other side of the connection.
