Oh pants, I forgot to even look for the fact that the outer didn’t have a modem! Thanks for pointing that out.
Well, I need the modem urgently (main wired PC but miles away from plug socket, using USB modem on computer that is plugged into TV downstairs - bloody nightmare to use) - my router aspect can wait, however I would like to get a combined station if possible.
Going out first thing tomorrow so need an idea by then. I can always travel to the nearest PC World which is some12 miles away but their selection online doesn’t look too good for cheap modem routers.
