Re: netgear

If you like the wireless performance, you can use it along with your talk talk router, the talk talk router has a modem and deals with ADSL side of the connection and the cable router could do the wireless, they would need to be connected by LAN cable with the cable router in 'Bridge' mode and the talk talk modem with wireless switched 'off'
If you have/get a really long LAN cable, then they can also be connected this way to use the cable router as a wireless repeater, thus increasing WiFi range throughout your home. In this case you would leave the talk talk router wireless 'ON' and both routers would use the same wireless details, any device could roam and use strongest WiFi signal. The cable router would still be in 'Bridge mode'.
If your talk talk router does all that you need, forget about it and put the cable router on e-bay!

Absolutely not! Under no circumstances should it be used as a swimming float, a cushion or for frying eggs.:smileytongue:
