    Hi All

    I have a Linksys WAG54G ADSL modem/Router/Wireless access point, which works all fine. However, i`ve now moved over to New Zealand from the UK and the house i'm in has cable internet access. Now, I know the adsl modem feature isn`t going to work, but, can I still get the router and access point features to work?

    I`ve tried some setups, but to no avail at the moment.

    Any help greatly appreciated!!

    You wont be able to use the router part of it as it would require an ethernet connection for the WAN port. You could still use it as a 4 port switch and access point.

    HI,

    thanks for that. I also use the wireless access point to allow my laptop to connect to the internet.

    Would that still work?

    Yep you could still use it as an access point.

    But would the laptop be able to connect through the internet?

    Because I now have a cable modem, in network options there is no "Internet" icon, so Im not sure I can enable ICS etc.

    Any suggestions?

    How many computers/laptops will be connecting to the cable modem?

    How many IP addresses does your ISP give you?

    Unfortunately, I only get one IP address.

    Thing is, its my lan that gets the Ip address, so an ip of 203.X.X.X which means its no longer on the 192.168.1.100 situation, which makes it kinda awkward.

    I alos use the wireless access point to let other devices (xbox and PSP) to connect to the net too.

    Does it really mean I need to get a cable router/access point?

    I'm afraid so, something like the WRT54G would do the trick.

    Ah, I thought so.

    Many thanks for the info though!
