    I think cable networks tend to use a separate modem and router, rather than combined as ADSL networks do (at least, that's how Virgin do/used to do it). I was just assuming it was cable only from the link. Easiest way to check is to go to the router set-up and see if you can input your ADSL username and password in the settings....

    Yes, it did ask me for that. I just ignored it until it went away. It is currently working I should add, although via the old Orange wireless modem plugged into the ADSL filter.

    By the way, what's an access point?! Is that like using the router as an extension? there's a switch to turn the box to router only.
