Connecting a WAN + 4port LAN modem

By romanus.odiwe ·
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

Disconnect the voyager router. Connect new modem router to phone line, the airport basestation can be connected to the Router. The router should be configured for your ADSL ISP provider via web i/f or whatever. Then it should provide DHCP for the wireless clients. The basestation should have its DHCP disabled and its IP address matching the router modem.
