      Hang Wireless Router off Sky ADSL Modem?

      A friend asked me to see if his wireless modem could be connected to his non-wireless sky adsl modem. I connected a netgear wireless modem (cable modem) to one of the ethernet ports on the Sky modem after previously having configured wireless between the wireless modem and the laptop. The wireless router and the Sky adsl modem appeared to configure each other and I obtained a connection. I could surf the web from the laptop wireless. Unfortunately I could not switch on the hard wired PC that was connected to the Sky adsl modem - needed to test the broadband speed. This was because although I had a wireless connection it was amazingly slow - 325 kbs. My friend was not sure what broadband speed he has (I assume 2MB) so 35 kbs is slow. Is it possible that although I had a internet connection between the wireless cable modem and the Sky adsl modem the configuration details were not correct?

      All Sky routers have wireless.
