    I purchased a WRK54G Router, read all I could about the setup.
    After setup was nearing completion, My wife told me the phone is not working ?
    I tried my own phone, true enough no dialing tone !

    I couldn't complete setup obviously since no broadband could be
    I am on tiscali ADSL 2.3 Mbps using USB Sagem Fast 800 E2L PE Modem ( I now realise that I cannot use this modem for broadband)

    Can the Linksys Router be used on its own ?

    Should this Router close (Short out, Whatever) my phone.

    Alny solutions ?

    Issue with the Modem

    well phil I think it has to do with your USB Sagem Fast 800 E2L PE Modem. No the Linksys Router will not work on the web until it is not connecetd to your modem with Ethernet cable

    The WRK54G router must be used with a ASDL modem with an Ethernet (e.g. RJ45) connector. The modem you have has a USB connector. You either have to get a new modem or a router with a USB connector. A WAG54GX2 - Wireless-G ADSL Gateway with SRX200 may work.
