    Anyone in the UK help with broadband advice?
    Hello all those in the UK.

    I'm about to setup a new wireless network in a new house but need some user advice concerning BT broadband.

    Has anyone had any experience with using the Basic BT broadband package with a Belkin wireless adsl modem router?

    I've heard rumours that the basic account has issues with 3rd party routers, basically because they want to charge you more for an account the 'supports networking'.

    Thanks to any advice that anyone can give.

    I don't know a great deal about BT and their packages relating to Broadband.
    Although generally, from what I hear I wouldn't exactly recommend them to anyone.
    I'm on Eclipse and whilst all ISPs have their problems, I find them to be pretty good.
    Certainly one of the better ISPs.

    I'm currently using NTL and they do the job just fine.

    Unfortunately the place i'm moving to already has BT so i have no choice but to work with it.

    I use BT Yahoo! INternet with a main Belkin Router and it works perfectly, once it is set-up correctly its fine, the problem is setting it up!
