configure wireless ADSL modem router

By romanus.odiwe ·
Connecting a WAN + 4port LAN modem
I have a standard bt broadband Voyager router (always
conected -no dial up) connected to a mac via USB and
a lap top via apple airport base station. I want to
connect another mac and a pc to the broadband, so I
have bought a WAN with 4 port LAN wirless ADSL
modem router and a wireless card for the pc. However I
do not know how to set them up. Do I just unplug the bt
router, and put the adsl line into the wan port and the
other computers and airport base station into the lans?
Or does the new modem router have to go through the
bt voyager 200 Router? Can you help me wire and
configure to use al the machines on the broadband?
Thanks in advance
Romanus

You will have to setup the modem to connect to your ISP. You probably had to do this for your old modem as well (except if you got the modem directly from your ISP, then it was probably preinstalled for you). So now you should be able to enter the configuration of your old Modem, note all the settings, connect the new modem set it up accordingly.

"Do I just unplug the bt router, and put the adsl line into the wan port and the other computers and airport base station into the lans? "--> you're correct! After setting your network physically, you have to configure it. Access the router's set-up page. Configure its SSID, channel, network key, etc. Just refer to your new router's manual on how you should be doing it. Regarding your PC, just install the driver for the wireless card. If you're using WinXP, you have an option to use window's zero config so windows will handle the configuration for the wireless connection..if you need details on this, just PM..

Why are you replacing the airport base station. If the laptop is working then the other computers should be able to access through the airport by adding wireless cards that are the same protocol as the airport.

Is the airport the standard model, (802.b) or the Extreme model, (802.g). the Extreme is compatable with both protocols.

You will have to disconnect the current Voyager router and apple airport to install the new modem.

Whatever you do you will need to the wireless router will have to be compatable with everything else.

A new 802.g system is backwards compatable.

Ok lets make this simple. Give us the make/model of the new lan modem. Give us the model of the airport.

We can cut the what if's down greatly, and give you the easiest hookup.

I am running a mixed mac and pc wireless on a linksys 54G.
