WAG54GX2 as router (no modem)

    Recently I switched providers from ADSL to Cable.

    I now have a perfectly ok WAG54GX2, but as modem it's of no use.

    What I do want is to use it's routing capabilities to connect to the cable-modem i've got.
    Is there a way to change the settings, so it will route traffic through one of the LAN ports to my Cable modem?

    The cable modem is an Arris Touchstone TM-401B.
    To connect my computer networkcard directly to the modem I have to change the computername to a code given to me by the cable-provider. I guess I'll have to enter this code somewhere in the router.

    Any ideas how to solve this? Is it possible at all??

    All the Linksys WAGs can route from the internal modem only !
    This because there is no WAN port on the back !

    Is it possible to use it as a switch in my network? I mean, just configure it as a DHCP relay to have an (extra) wireless accesspoint.
    I'll have to buy another router with a WAN port to do my routing and act as a DHCP server.
