An ADSL Router is usually the best way to connect to your high speed ADSL line. ADSL Routers allow multiple users to use your Internet service at the same time so everyone can enjoy high-end Internet functions like streaming video and audio. An ADSL Router will create a local area network, so you can also share files, printers and other network peripherals. Most also provide a much safer internet connection with built-in firewall security preventing unauthorised access of your network from the internet.
ADSL routers can only be used via BT's copper phone lines which have been enabled with ADSL broadband. ADSL routers have a built-in ADSL modem, making them a very tidy, one box solution. Most also have built-in Ethernet switches allowing you to connect multiple computers to the router. Should you wish to expand the number of ports, you'll need an additional switch to connect to
ADSL routers will work with Broadband services delivered via a standard telephone line.
