I have NTL cable but no seperate cable modem (assume my set top box takes care of this) and so at the mo just plug the rj-45 into my pc via a usb device which my housemate and I share by the old plug and unplug method. would I be correct in assuming that this router is what we require to allow us to both use it at the same time? we already have working network cards from a failed hub experiment a while back...
Yes this would plug into the NTL box then act as a network router, once you plug it in you may need to retype your PID and password again on the NTL side as it has a new mac address (i remember i had to).

I bought this router and am very happy with it. I had a bit of trouble to start with but found a firmware upgrade for it which stopped it crashing. Also I had to limit my outgoing connection count to about 220 I think as above 240 was crashing my NTL Modem.
