    Some advice please

    My uncle has telewest broadband and a netgear hub which shares out his network connection.

    I have a Draytek 2600G adsl router, can I plug my adsl router into his netgear hub and then use the wireless connection on the Draytek to access his telewest broadband connection ? Or can the draytek not do this ?

    Basically I want to use my Draytek as a wireless AP, instead of having to buy a bog standard wireless AP.

    Does anyone know ?

    Thanks

    Should be possible as the AP side of the router will be "attached" to the LAN side not the WAN side.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    I do this with my Linksys Router, very easy, just make sure they are in the same IP range.
