      Linksys wag300n router

      Hi ,Being a bit of a novice when it comes to routers. I could do with a bit of advice.
      I have been offered a linksys wag300n for a good price ,which would be good for me as i live in a stone cottage and the sky routers wireless just dont do the job. and with the wag300n being n mode wireless i hoping this will help.
      My question is ive noticed its only got a ethernet input to link it to another modem ,and no input for normal lead to the adsl socket. does this mean i will have to link it to sky router to connect it to adsl. Thanks Tim

      Re: Linksys wag300n router

      The WAG300N, according to the Datasheet, has a built in Access Point Capability. With this switched on you can connect via Ethernet to your Sky Router and use the WAG300N for your wireless connection to the Internet.

      If the WAG gives the opportunity to choose an IP, pick a high number to avoid IP clashes. 192.168.0.254 or similar works for me.

      There is a user guide on the Lynksys site, but it wouldn't open for me when I tried.

      The major downside to this type of setup is having to have extra kit sat around, especially if a) your router is in the lounge or b) you are married to my wife who seems to have an aversion to boxes and wires for some reason
