Can anyone tell me how the femtocell connects to your router?  I haven't been able to get hold of one yet but the local store told me I needed a new modem because of the connection (although they didn't ask which modem I already had!).

As a second question (which I did ask in the other thread) does anyone know if there are any more coming as they're currently sold out?  Or even where else I can get one from?

Cheers

A

It's a standard ethernet connection. Vodafone were supplying free modems with them so they could do QoS on the connection.

you can get them working with other routers. In my case though, it took quite a bit of stuffing about, and assistance from Vodafone (I didn't even do anything 'wrong' as such)
