Smile Two Queries for the Guy

1. I will be back in UK for a little christmas shopping and wondered which Freesat box you think has the best tuner for SW Spainand is it a different make for HD?

2. I have just had Iberabanda line of sight microwave internet and phone installed. I now need to add a wifi router and a phone.
The installer said the phone has to be analogue what does he mean by this?
He also said that the router should be a RJ 45. Back in UK I have both a Belkin ADSL and a Belkin cable wifi routers would the cable one be suitable addition to my setup?

Try the Humax FoxSat HD - it's about the best but a little expensive.

The best performing Freesat boxes are the Humax HD and Humax HDR - the latter has inbuilt hard disk drive for your recordings.

It is a bit ticky to answer your questions without seeing what they have already installed. Maybe they have already provided you with a router unit as part of your "wireless" equipment.
A router is a just router.
A ADSL Modem is just a modem
A ADSL Model + router has both built in.
Many people buy a router thinking it has ADSL modem capability.
So be sure what you currently have installed and what you actually need.

I thnk RJ 45 is a cable type , usually used to link a router to a adsl modem

RJ 45 is the name of the plug that usually connects into the router. J standing for "Jack" Americanese for plug.
