    Well I currently have a Motarola SB5100 which came with my Telewest connection, however my sister wants internet access so we decided to invest in wireless networking.

    The problem is that if i buy a wireless router it would mean that i would have two devices on my desk, the Motarola modem + the router. for this reason I was intrested in finding a router with built in modem!

    Well you could make use of both your router and modem. But a linksys blah blah (dunno t he name) which links all your computer into 1 router and the router connects to the internet via the modem plug into your router and your modem connects to the internet. Get it?

    Decided on the Buffalo Airstation 125

    Think it would be adaquate? The website does not mention whether the internet can be accessed while the main pc (server) is off, or is that a standard feature?
