Whats the difference between adsl adsl and cable connections? I am looking to get a new router and what’s the difference between the two ? are the connection types different ? any pictures to help ? So i can see what the difference connection wise ? Many thanks

The media is different, on copper you have a pair of cables and on cable you have a coaxial cable. So you’ll need different modems if you switch from one to the other.

What is the best way to speed up an ADSL 512kbps connection? my friend told me that using a router (currently i’m using an ADSL usb modem) will speed up my internet connection! is that true?

Not quite true. The USB speed is more than 512K, so I don’t think that you’ll experience a much greater speed with an ethernet router. However an ethernet router can do more things, such as connect many PCs, firewall, wireless, NAT and port forward.
