Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I used to use a DSL based Internet connection (an AirLive WT-2000ARM). Recently I changed my Internet connection and it is now provided through PacketCable. The provider gave a modem for it (Thomson THG570), it has one Ethernet output and works fine. But I would like to take advantage of the wifi router I have.

How can I make the wifi router route through the PacketCable modem? What direction should I move? Sorry, for the possibly dummy question, I tried to figure out how to configure these devices, with no luck yet.. Thanks for your help.

Connect the WAN port of the router to the Ethernet port of the modem. The connect your other devices to either the router's wifi or one of its switch ports.
