Hi all! Not sure if I can do this but it seems to make sense that I can. My ISP has just upgraded my connection and sent me a wireless Router/DSL Modem combo unit. I currently have a Linksys wireless modem that I would like to use to connect to the wireless modem/router from my ISP. This will save me having to fish cable from my office upstairs in my house to the modem/router in the basement. Is this feasible or do I have to hard wire a switch to the modem/router in order to get connectivity? I want to be able to use my network for updating my clients' OS and Anti-virus, etc. It seems to me that this can be done but I would like any thoughts you all may have.

Yes it's feasible. Can it be done? I dunno - but it's just the same principle that wireless print servers use and they're readily available.
