Hi
I just read your mail again, you didn't say what speed your broadband 
connection is, the ADSL modem I suggested is only recommended for up to a 
2Mb connection.  As you are using Bulldog I am guessing you have and 8Mb+ 
connection in which case you need this modem.

or if you have several pcs for a few pounds more the 5 port version.

I should also have mentioned that you need an ethernet port in your pc to be 
able to configure the modem over the web interface don't try to use the USB 
port as it requires you to use configuration software and they only supply 
that for Windows.

Phil
