NTL Cable Broadband Wireless Connection

I currently access the internet via NTL broadband using the "blue" ethernet cable.
I now want the freedom of a wireless connection.
Father Xmas has bought me a BT Voyager 2110 Wireless Broadband ADSL Router and BT Voyager 1060 Wireless Adaptor.

From looking at other items on the forums, and trying to set up this kit, I have learned that this kit does not work.

Is there any way I can get this kit to work ?

Or am I better changing this kit for a standalone Cable / DSL routers and adaptor (old laptop) ?

Please advise.

If I need to buy new kit, any recommendations would be most appreciated.

Many thanks.

You cannot use a combined "Router & ADSL Modem" with NTL's Cable Broadband service - you do need a Wireless Cable/DSL Router.

Models from any of the mainstream providers - Belkin, Linksys, Netgear, D-Link etc should be fine.

I use a Buffalo model with Telewest Cable - click here - in conjunction with a Belkin PCMCIA WiFi adapter in the laptop and a Belkin USB WiFi adapter I can swap about as required.

Just a quick note of thanks for the advice.
I will swap the BT gear and go for the equipment recommended.
Once again, many thanks.
