I need help to convert a ADSL modem as router.


My previous internet service provider was giving me a DSL line with modem.


I have changed my ISP now, and they just supplied a LAN wire with a static IP.


Can I use my old modem as router? If yes how? 


It has one DSL port, 4 LAN port and wireless service.


I believe DSL will be of no use now...


Please help.

What is the make and model of them modem? And the answer is maybe but I sort of doubt it. You'd be better buying an inexpensive wireless router. 

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

"Can I use my old modem as router?"


No you can not use your dsl modem router as a router.  You need a router that has a rj45 wan port not a rj11 wan port.  You will have to buy a new router.
