I've just moved, signed with an ISP and gotten my modem. Turned out though, that the modem has an integrated wireless AP (NETGEAR CG 3200) - something I wasn't expecting. That is because I like my router (TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND), which has DD-WRT, and not that crap my ISP has got installed on theirs. The reason why I just don't use my own, is that it doesn't have a SMA antenna cable port/connector.
Now my question(s) is:
1. Is it a way for me to ditch the NETGEAR with a off-the-shelf modem of some kind? Or has my ISP programmed the NETGEAR in some way that forces me to use it? Not 100% sure of the modems functions, so please, enlighten me
2. I could series-connect my router (TP-LINK) to the NETGEAR, to use it as a kind of repeater, but how would this affect the speed? I would then disable the NETGEARs Wireless Router Radio which turnes for the wireless part, so speak. Right?
Thanks for the hjelp!
