Thanks Ivor. All noted. I think that I will wait as you advise.
I have seen some negative comments on the 7140.
One poster said he was onto his second one and advised not to buy
unless they sort out the firmware. Another said that there was
excessive nise on PSTN.
I have looked at Draytek but they are very expensive.
