I have a client that has incoming internet on a westel modem. The pc wired into this work just fine. Meanwhile the netgear wpn824 is hardwired into this on a ethernet port and is acting as a hub, i.e more pc's around the office wired into it. All fine uptill now. But the westell hasn't got wireless capabilty, so how do i configure the 824 box to act as a wireless access point , i.e connect through it's pwn ethernet port to the westell box

You should already be able to use the router as a wireless Access Point.  Just turn the wireless on and it should work.

If the Westel is donig DHCP, make sure the Netgear has DHCP disabled.

Simple, centralized multimedia control

Watch and learn to see how ATEN provided an easy and effective way for three jointly-owned pubs to control the 60 televisions located across their three venues utilizing the ATEN Control System, Modular Matrix Switch and HDBaseT extenders.

Will the netgear box automatically switch internet explorer calls out through it's lan ports rather than look towards it's inbuilt modem ?. Seems a bit clever

The traffic goes where your default gateway is set.
The switch just passes it along.
