      Exclamation Wireless Router ?

      Wireless Router

      As well as running Sky Broadband I also have a second Computer on my existing Dial Up running because the performance using the Sky Wireless Router is total rubbish and cannot hold a connection if make one at all.
      Does this mean that the PC on Dialup will not perform as well as it did before I had the Broadband?.
      As it was cheap I am using a Beklkin USB Wireless adaptor, and I get 55% - 65% Signal and hardly makes the connection. I have tried changing the channel from 1 to 6 as there are 4 other stations on Channel 1 but it did not make any difference. Must sign off now as the blasted thing is about to conk out again.

      im not sure if i understand your question correctly but, the dialup will perform the same wether or not you are using adsl at the same time.

      are your connection problems, the router loosing sync or the wireless loosing connection.
