    You mean wireless router? That's what you need for connecting your wii to the internet, unless you want to use LAN.
    I recommend any Linksys router that says on the box 'wi-fi certified'.
    You can get them for around £30-50. www.linksys.com - this link will probably be right, I don't know as I have just guessed it lol. You could try searching google though.

    D-Links ftw, that's what I use and never done me wrong. (cept when I hate a Wii it took decades to set it up to it but still worked)

    Ok, so you want to connect your wii through LAN.
    google 'wii LAN adapter' and you should get some results, I connect my wii wirelessly so I don't have any experience in this field of internet connectivity.

    It sounds like he is asking about a replacement DSL modem.

    call Tiscali and see if they'll offer you a new wireless modem/router.

    failing that, there are plenty available, such as these on ebuyer's site:-

    http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/store/Networking

    whatever you do, don't buy a wireless router for cable customers.
    ensure that your's has ADSL or ADSL+2 somewhere in it's description.

    if you do decide to get one, you will need to configure it with a PC first
    and enter your ISP supplied username / password combination so that
    you're authenticated to your ISP servers.

    You'd like to know, wouldn't you?
    Here's a list of compatible modems, though all of them dont work completely, the ones that have the rating "Recommended" do.

    sorry to be pinickity, but that's just plain wrong.

    i have a router...it hasn't got a modem built in.

    ok, there are two types of router available here in the UK:-

    ADSL combined modem/router or standalone router for cable customers.

    if you're just after a "modem" i'd suggest giving your ISP a call and
    requesting one from them, explain what your issues are and hopefully,
    they'll offer you a replacement. failing that, have a look on eBay for
    alternatives.

    if you're after a "wireless modem/router", then i'm unsure as to whether
    they give them away....some ISP's do, and i suppose if you threaten to
    drop their service they might offer you an upgrade.
