Just moved to HK and have Now Broadband installed with a wireless router. I can't get the wireless to work, but my question is - I don't really need wireless so can I buy any broadband modem and use an ethernet cable direct to my PC?
Downstairs where the TV is I have the modem set up feeding to the Now tv box which works fine. Upstairs in the study I have the PC and an ADSL/telephone jack. I have taken the modem upstairs to the study (so cannot currently watch tv) and connected it to the PC so I can get internet access. I tried calling PCCW to order a second modem but they said (at least I think they said) I would need to subscribe to a second package to get a second modem.
So any issues with going out and buying my own modem, putting the Now modem back downstairs to work with the TV, and the new modem in the study.
Sorry if this sounds confusing, but any help would be appreciated.
