Hi. I recently purchased a TP-Link (TL-WR641G) wireless router but can't get it to work with my existing modem (a Speedtouch 330). I'm with Wanadoo broadband. Wondering if anyone can help? I'm totally confused, even after studying the instruction manual. Thanks a lot, Emily.

The Speedtouch 330 is a USB modem for a Single computer to be connected to your ISP to allow access to the Internet

You cannot use a USB modem with a router; you need to get a modem with an Ethernet ports to connect the router

Or a combine modem wireless router

If you purchase the D-Link ADSL2+ Ethernet Modem you will have to set it up first to connect to your ISP to allow you access to the Internet

Once you can access and browse the Internet disconnect the cable from the PC LAN card and connect to the TP-Link (TL-WR641G) wireless router wan port, using a second Ethernet cable connect the PC LAN card to port 1 on the router.

You now have to access the router and set it up to allow you access to the modem and the Internet

Read the manual on how to access and set-up the router

If you purchase the combine modem wireless router you just remove the Speedtouch 330 USB modem and connect the phone line to the RJ11 connector on the unit.

Connect an Ethernet cable from port 1 to the LAN card port on the PC

You now have to access the router and set it up to allow you access to your ISP and the Internet
