The following is a guide to the piece of equipment, generically known as hardware, and specifically known as a ADSL modem or ADSL router, that you will need to order to enable a new broadband connection.
If you are changing your broadband supplier to surefish, you will already own a modem or router, and, in the majority of cases, should not need to order one.
As with all equipment ordered from us for new broadband connections, the following modems and routers are pre-configured, which means that you don't have to alter any of its settings.
You will be able to plug it into your laptop or desktop computer and, after following the instructions to install the software from the CD, be connected to the internet via broadband.

Micro-filters (2 are included with every device)
A micro-filter lets you have broadband internet and a telephone line using just one wall socket. You can use the internet and use the phone at the same time. All modems come with two microfilters, so you will only need to purchase one or more extra filters if you have more than two phone extensions in use.
You only have to plug a microfilter into phone sockets that are being used - if they have a device plugged into them such as an extra phone or a fax machine. Phone sockets not in use do not need microfilters.
