WRT54G setup question

    Probably a silly question.

    My PC has a PCI (internal) DSL modem. I have 2 laptops with wireless cards.
    Am I able to plug the PC into a WRT54G and use the PC's internal modem as the broadband source for my wireless network, or would I need to buy an external DSL modem ?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Use the internal DSL modem to connect you to the internet. Equip your PC with an ethernet card and use ICS in windows or third party software (eg. 602 LAN Suite) as Firewall/Router. Now wire your PC to one of the LAN ports of the WRT54, leave the WAN connection open, and you should be in business.
