Hi I have a Netpia R3100-S ISDN 8 Port Router.
I also have a BT Voyager 2100 ADSL with 2 ports free.
I also have 8 old PCs, all are Dells Ranging from 350MHz to 750MHz with Ethernet connections.
I am totally in the dark here can I connect the two or not and if so how. Iff not what should I be looking for.
The BT voyager is running a couple of PCs via Ethernet and its also wireless for the rest of the house for Laptops.

I would have thought that was only suitable for use with an ISDN phone line - a "digital" phone line such as the old BT Home Highway ISDN service, not with current ADSL technology.

To run additional computers from your ADSL router, you should only have to plug a "network switch" into on of its LAN ports to provide additional connections, there is no requirement for a second "router".

Hi OK is this suitable.
Netgear FVS318 Network Switch Cable/DSL Firewall Router 8 Ports. May be able to pick this up SH for about £15
Found this on Net.
The BT Voyager has a built-in firewall also; this can be simply or fully configured to provide protection while on-line WEP, WPA and MAC Association Control for added security for wireless connections.

Not sure how to configure or is it OK to run 2 fire walls I already use Norton Fire wall or I have the choice of Win XPs own Firewall.

Any other cables needed that I should get to connect the two or is it by ethernet.

Yes, because this is a network switch which will allow the connection of additional computers, without the "router" features which you don't want to duplicate.
