ADSL Modem Router


big_rich    0


A friend of mine has has a cable connection to the internet and at the moment they have a wired connection to the cable modem. Problem is, they don't like having wires running everywhere!

They happened to mention they have a wireless ADSL Modem Router from when they lived elsewhere, so i was just wondering if there was any way that that could be used to share the connection wirelessly? Could the modem part be disabled? If so, how?

It's a bit of a long-shot and they'll probably have to buy a wireless router, but just thought i'd ask.
