    Hi All

    My ADSL line has now been installed and I need to get an ADSL modem.

    I'm not perticually looking for a WIFI unit, as I already have an Apple Airport Express (a wireless router which you can play your Itunes back too, connected to you stereo - Very nifty!)

    I am however looking for something that I could connect an ext HDD to and use it as a storage device that I don't have to keep connecting to my laptop, if this is possible?

    but I don't want to have to sell my kidney for it, I know, I want my cake and be able to eat it...:whistling:

    If it makes any differance, it will be on a 4096kps Line.

    Thanks

    I've got the Belkin modem with a 1 terabit hard drive connected to it. Everyone that logs on to my network can connect to the hard drive. Think I paid R3000 but the next week they were R1999. About the 4096kps line, certain modems will give you more performance, my modem gives me 3.96mb/s on speed test, my old modem gave me 2.4mb/s on the same line.

    A little later tonight I'll receive the mail from my contact on this model and I think he told me there was an upgrade on this model (with a "N" at the end) ... I'll forward the mail to you and lets see if we can save you some $$$$ since you got 7 days to test ..... If his quote is cheaper than you return that one ... lets wait for his price .....
