Right, like a plonker I didn't research my subject sufficiently so now
have to ask the question.
I have a speedtouch usb modem and Dlink non-usb wireless router.
Now, the usb modem will not connect to the router via it's ethernet
connector so I need to overcome this. Does anyone know of an adapter
that will enable the usb cable of the modem to the wan port on the
router? Or, can anyone recommend a modem suitable for the above
situation. Non-usb ethernet modems seem to be difficult to get hold of.
Maybe I haven't looked hard enough.
