    Hi all,

    I just got dsl, and bought the ActionTec dsl modem/router at compusa. To configure it, I have to take the router out of the network altogether, and connect the ActionTec directly to my computer.

    I would very much like the network to be connected in the following manner: wall -> ActionTec -> Linksys -> computers on the network.

    When I tried simply plugging in the Linksys in the physically appropriate spot, everything went down, and I had to remove it, and re-setup the dsl modem.

    Is my desired setup possible? Lil help please?

    Thanks for anything!

    I'll check it out!
