Today, I finally got the service...

    Internet, Landline and Wireless Phone
    I have Sympatico DSL plus a Linksys wired router. If I upgraded to Sympatico’s claimed wireless networking, which as I understand it is just a wifi transceiver and receiver and not a router, could I continue to use my Linksys wired router? And if so, how? Or do I have this wrong?
