      Thats a Cable router designed for a Virgin connection not ADSL (Sky). In theory it will still work however you would have to have the Belkin router connectws to the Sky router for it to work. You need to get a router with an ADSL modem built in, never had any experience with Belkin however I can say good things about Netgear, Linksys and Cisco.

      For ADSL you need this one, which has the same specs except it has a built in modem.
      Play.com (UK) : Belkin F7D4402uk Play Wireless NN+ ADSL Modem Router : Computing - Free Delivery

      Looks very good.

      I don't know why Play are charging that for the cable router, it is 20 cheaper elsewhere, I think they have made a mistake.

      Not out til August going by Play.com, personally I think it's overkill - Gigabit Ethernet is pointless unless your PCs have it already, and wireless-N the same...

      Looks nice, though
