I have recently moved home to a rural location where i can no longer get my old cable internet. So i now have ADSL and the ISP sent me a free modem/router i opted not to pay the extra $120 for a Wifi modem as i already have my own Wifi Router that i had used on my old Cable.
So i got the ISP's modem/router all setup and here i am online all ok with an Ethernet cable to the modem/router from my Mac, this is all fine. BUT i would like to use my own Wifi router as well (router only, not modem) so i can have Wifi at home for use by my two different laptops and my Ipod Touch.
I did think that if i plugged the Wifi router into say Lan port 2 on the modem/router it would act as a computer and then relay the internet using the Wifi, but this hasn't worked at all. I am sure there is a way of doing this isnt there? Starting to wish i had paid the extra for the Wifi modem from ISP, but it seemed silly when i already have a Wifi router collecting dust in a drawer.
Would appreciate any help please?
