      Question Sky BB box but Tesco BB wireless adaptor - can I make them talk?

      Hi All,

      I recently signed up to Sky 'everything included' package. With my never ending problems with British Telecom, it made sense to go with Sky for the phone too, so why not internet aswell? The package seemed good enough.

      I was previously on Tesco broadband who had sent me a Thomson speedtouch box and Speedtouch 121g (version 2) USB adaptor.

      When the Sky wireless box came through (netgear), there wasn't an adaptor with it, so to connect the PC to the internet, I need the wireless box to be close by. Unfortunately, I don't have a phone line next to the computer. After a few weeks of having my PC in the living room, I've got fed up of looking at it sitting there, and have moved everything back into the office.

      So, (sorry for the life story!), can I get my speedtouch usb adaptor to work with the netgear wireless router, or do I need to go out and by a netgear one instead?

      Many thanks in advance,
      Amy
