Need to add a wireless router to my DSL modem - 500 points!
Posted on 2006-06-06
I have a client who has DSL Service. The client is having a problem with their DSL connection that the DSL company is working on. Once the DSL connection issues have been resolved I want to add a wireless router to allow other PCs to use the internet connection. The DSL company says they do not support wireless DSL modems. The DSL Modem is a Lucent DSL Pipe and it has a built in router. What I want to know is can I connect a Linksys Wireless router to one of the open ports on the back of the modem and will this allow the other PCs to access the internet with wireless connections? If yes, do I need to do anything special when installing the Linksys router?
