Cable modem, ADSL router compatiblity
Posted on 2007-10-07
I'm using a cable modem provided by Virgin Media in the UK to access our 20mb broadband service and was wondering about compatibility with my router.
Basically when I connect my computer directly to the cable modem via ethernet, I get reasonable speeds.
However, when I connect the cable modem via ethernet to the ADSL router and then to my PC, our download speeds plumit.
Although the ADSL modem within the router is obviously not being used to connect to the internet, is there some compatibility issues with using a cable modem to provide internet to an ADSL router? and if yes, do I just need to replace the router with a compatible one (any recommendations?)
FYI, the cable modem is a Virgin Media E08C007 and the router, a Belkin Wireless G-Plus (F5D7231-4)
All ideas welcome,
