I am trying to put a router in line with my wireless dsl modem without defeating the purpose of the wireless modem.
Any ideas????

Hi,

Whats the purpose of router in your network?

 

Assuming this is your current config:

 

PC  )))))) DSL modem --- ISP,

 

you can connect the router to any ethernet port  on DSL modem, if available.

 

PC  )))))) DSL modem --- ISP

                      |

                      |

                      |

         WAN/Uplink port of Router

 

Brackets : wireless

dashes : wired....

 

Be sure to connect the ethernet cable to the router's WAN/UPLINK port.

Share more details like make and models and purpose so we can help better.

Aside from the fact you have a dsl wireless router you never stated what you wanted to accomplish with the additional router.

 

More Ethernet ports?

Create two different network?

Extend networking?

 

Answers to these questions will allow a more complete answer to your question.

I am trying to make use of the lynsky routers hardware firewall.  Just plugging it into the cable port would that not defeat the purpose of the wireless connection to the PC.  Basically turning it back into a wired network?

Forgive me but it has been quite a few years since I did this.

 

I should add the router is not a wireless router but the modem is.

Your DSL modem/router might already have a builtin Firewall. Have you checked online the features and specification?

While currently connected with your router modem, right-click the network icon - Network and Sharing.

Click on the house icon then look for the information under Network Infrastructure.

No matter what I check or where in my network I can no longer get the something that looks like what you show.

I used to but not anymore.  I wonder what changed?

Sorry for not getting back I lost this post for awhile. Since I can't seem to get quote and multi quote to work.

 

I am running win 10 [the update] On a Hp 15-15-f009wm {almost a computer. It just meets min. system requirements to run10} The wireless modem combo router is a pace model 5013NV.030.

I tried to access it and check the router settings and the logs. Apparently AT&T does not like that I lost the internet for 6 hrs. and Had to reboot 3 times logging in each time.

All I did was try took not change anything. They don't seem to like anybody looking under the hood.

 

Maybe this will help answer the questions.

Pan America, so you could check the specification of your Pace router model.

Dannyboy950 you can't add the Linksys to your network and use the firewall feature unless you only use it with a wired connection.

 

Given your situation with a modem/router combo unit the only way you can set this up is to buy a dsl modem.  Then you could use wifi and have the Linksys firewall protect your devices.  Topology would look like this:

 

Internet<>new dsl modem<>Linksys router<>wifi router connected via a lan port [acting as a wifi AP and switch but not as a router]
