I've got a D-link DI-624+ router, which up until now has connected to my NTL's modem & both sitting on top of my base unit. I receive the wireless connection to my laptop through this router, for browsing Internet & fire sharing, etc. NTL's Internet is connected through Ethernet (DSL connection). My PC has NOT got the Wireless card but my laptop has.
I'm now thinking to cancel my NTL's connection & get myself signed-up on www.plus.net Internet. Alongside, what I also wish to do is to move my PC to different room.
If I get the ADSL based connection through www.plus.net, I reckon the connection would be through my BT line downstairs, which is the ONLY BT telephone socket I've at home. Hence to connect this ADSL based Internet, I'll have to establish connection from all the way downstairs’ BT telephone socket to upstairs’ PC.
In order NOT to have to connect downstairs’ BT socket with the router upstairs (so as NOT to have the hassle of “cabling”), alternatively, I could have my D-link router downstairs connected in my BT telephone socket & have a wireless card for my upstairs’ PC, so it can receive signal from the router downstairs. However, if I do so, I need to make sure that my D-link router has a “built-in” modem as well. How do I find that out ??? If it hasn’t got the built-in modem then I’ll have to rely on connecting this router with the modem provided by www.plus.net, which means, I’ll HAVE to keep this router connected to my modem using a “cable” & hence will have to keep it sitting on my base unit (meaning, I’ll have to connect “BT socket downstairs” with this router using a “cable” all the way from downstairs to upstairs, isn’t it).
Shall I have another BT socket installed upstairs, so as NOT to have a cable connecting from downstairs’ socket to upstairs’ router ???
I wonder if anyone around could possibly point me in the right direction & how exactly do I go about establishing the desired connection in an efficient way.
Additionally, I wonder that bearing in mind I wish to establish new connection in a new room now, should I say www.plus.net that I’ve ALREADY got the Internet connection or should I say, I need a brand new connection ??? After all, there’s a massive difference in the way, I’m currently connected (through DSL i.e. through cable drilled through my wall) & what I now want i.e. ADSL based connection (through my telephone line)
If there’s anything unclear with the situation or if anyone wish to ask me further to know something, before they could help me out, please do contact me using my e-mail.
Nope, I'm NOT God, but I'm British (which is the next best thing ;)
