Default How to add a wireless router to NTL broadband

Hi,

A friend of mine has NTL broadband. His PC is in a different room to
the broadband cable modem. So he has bought a wireless router (Netgear
rangemax wpn824) so that he can connect his PC (with a USB adaptor) to
the modem without any wires.

What's the best way of doing this?. Is it cable modem - Netgear using
the ethernet port on the NTL modem?. Also, when configuring the
Netgear, does he need to enter his NTL connection info (username,
password etc) into the router?.

Thanks for any info.

Its the only way.
You can't use the USB port.

Also, when configuring the
Netgear, does he need to enter his NTL connection info (username,
password etc) into the router?.


No.
There isn't anywhere to enter it either.


Don't forget to change the password on the router and to enable WPA once he
has it working.

Would also be a good idea if running the router as a DHCP server to
restrict connections to know wireless MAC addresses (accepting that
having previously enabled WPA it will have have already demand a network
key in order to connect)

Belt and braces and all that :-)

Just checking - is this router described as a DSL/cable router?

Its OK, I checked the Netgear site (assuming he quoted the correct number).

Its really a waste of time.
It adds zero security.
