looking for a 4 port hub/switch, that has a built in dsl modem.

had a look around, seen somethings, but curious to look deeper, before bringing out the pennies.

Any descent suggestions appreciated

Netgear DG824M ADSL Wireless Gateway Router With 4 X 10/100mbps Switch is what i have at home and it's sound.

Netgear MR314 Cable/DSL 802.11b Wireless NAT router with integrated 4 port switch I have heard is very good to.

I swear by Netgear and swear at SMC.

D-link dsl-604+

If you are going to buy a DSL hub, there is no reason not to include wireless in it. Doesn't support 802.11g though (But 22mbps internally wireless)

Appreciated chaps,

been using a multitude of connections at the mo, but due to the shape, age, and size of the task wiring out the house with cat5e, i thought this would be a better route.

Seen the D-link DSL 604+, though not come accross the wireless Netgear stuff, will have a read of the datasheets, and get something sorted.

Cheers

Linksys has stuff that is good and cheap. They were just acquired by Cisco, but supposedly will be run as a separate company. I'm sure their pricing makes the Cisco financial people cringe - Cisco probably charges more for the box on their cheapest router than Linksys does for the whole product.

I'm running a Linksys combo router/wired hub/wireless access point, and it works like a champ. Wireless guys will tell you to be cautious about mixing brands of wireless gear (despite supposed standards compliance), but we added a D-link PCI wireless card to an additional machine and it seems to work fine.

I have this: D-link dsl-604+ and do not recommend it.

I use linksys wireless usb card for my desktop and my roommate uses a laptop card for his, no problem with the cards, just need to restart the hub every few days...
