hi, if i go to add/remove and tick the modems to remove them, will that take all the settings out for me, I want to get another wireless adsl router, so i want to put the PC back as it was when i put the first one in, at the moment i have listed, a voyager2000, a voyager100, and a alactel speedtouch, and they all seem to be fighting with each could say "try it" but if i make a pigs ear of it, it might never connect to the net again :-(

You will have to remove the drivers from the "Add or Remove Programs" list. Then reboot.

Why don`t you go into properties of each one and at the bottom of the general (Troubleshoot) tab use the drop down box to disable them. They won`t be fighting then will they! Delete them when you`re set up on Wi-Fi. Which wireless router did you decide on by the way?

I've just done this myself (2 days ago). If you go to network connections you can right click on each one and disable them. This will not remove them yet. Then install your new router and use that. To completely remove the old connections you need to remove the drivers using add/remove programs. Then use Ccleaner to get rid of any old registry items left behind. Even after that I found there were reg. entries left in the start up folder for the voyager 100 modem I used. Use Ccleaner/tools/startup to show them. Delete GSICON.exe and DSLAGENT.exe.If there are any other entries you're not sure of use this click here
to identify them.
