hi, thinking of BT BB, i already have the 2mb service, but to sign up to the 8mb service they want you to sign for another 12 months, now to the question.... how can i tell if my wireless BB router, which is a Netgear DG834G ver2. will take it...there is list on the BT site, but, of course, they are the one's they sell.

thanks

If it's a 54Mb router there should not be a problem. Biggest problem is getting 8Mb, you may only get half that depends on many things.

Pretty much any wireless router will take 8mb broadband and beyond.

"whats a 54mb router?

A router that can handle speeds up to 54Mbps - far in excess of the 8Mbps you propose.

54Mbps is the theoretical maximum speed of the Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11g wireless network interface. It has no bearing on the maximum ADSL broadband speed an ADSL router can support.
