This doesn't sound wireless to me which means it sounds a standard modem which i had before.
Please confirm i am tech-less and let me know where i see this as wrong because it does say that everything has to be connected up by wires?? Thanks in advance.
you need a conection from the router to the phone pointotherwise the router has no signal. You need a line from your pc to the router tempoarily whilst you set the system up. That cable is then disconnected.
Wireless means between your pc and the router.
