    I've just changed from cable to ADSL, and have a bit of a hardware problem.

    I own a Linksys wireless router (WRT54G), which has an ethernet port to connect a modem to. This used to be fine for sharing my old cable connection with the wireless network in my house. But 99% of the ADSL modems I have seen seem to be USB only (including all the ones ISP's offer as freebies). But I feel bad discarding my working router only to buy an almost identical one with a built in ADSL modem for £70.

    Any suggestions on what to do?

    You could buy an ethernet ADSL modem and use that, but it'll probably cost about the same as buying a new ADSL router.
