    I have purchased a BEFW11S4 Wireless Router and a WET11 Bridge. Like a plonker I didnt check whether my BT Voyager USB modem would be ok to connect to it and off course it isnt.
    BT have a USB/Ethernet modem for 99.99 ( The Voyager200)
    Is their another cheaper stand alone ethernet modem which I can purchase instead. I was hoping to use a BT modem to save on the hassle of messing around with IP addresses( I assume if I bought a 3rd party modem I would have to).

    Any suggestions.

    The Ebuyer modem/router is great, I managed to get the 4 port one for not much more than 32 quid. Still great value at the current price and works a dream.

    I looked at different ethernet modems but they all seemed expensive in comparison to this one, so as I said, hope this works with the aforementioned kit??
