    Be careful.

    You need an ADSL/Cable modem with a seperate ethenet port first to plug into the router so it can share the bandwidth that way.

    It's a router, but it's not a modem router.

    Very few routers come with a cable modem. Plus most DSL/cable companies hand out the modem when you sign up.

    But not all come with a spare ethernet port (especially if it's DSL/ADSL)

    and I'll think you'll find there's a lot of combo routers/cable/dsl modems

    What do you mean S. Walch. Generally a router is made to split an internet connection. You are supposed to already have a cable/DSL/ADSL modem. You connect the modem to the WAN port and there are usually four-six lan ports of which you connect the computer(s) in question. Why would you need a spare ethernet port. Also all routers now-adays are compatible with DSL/ADSL/Cable modems. And inroder to find a modem router which is very rare, you will pay well over 150$. And for FENIS WOLF. Is this in USD, or antoher type of currency. Just wodnering since it does not metnion on the site? Thanks.
