Hi Team,

I have existing 3COM N-router(HP V110 ADSL-A Wireless-N  Wireless Router model JE459A) with built-in ADSL+2 modem, firewall & router. I'm joining Telstraclear by the end of the month. I'm just wondering if I can disable the modem function of my router. Share my broadband connectiong by using the  Dynamic/Fixed IP in 1483 Bridge Mode to connect to the TCL supplied cable modem to share my wifi connection to  2 computer  and Ipod Touch. Is this possible?
 
The 3COM had the following connection protocol:
PPOE
PPOA
Bridge Mode
Routing Mode over ATM
Dynamic/Fixed IP in 1483 Bridge Mode

Regards,

CJ

I'd highly doubt it. The device has no WAN port.

Bridge mode is no use because you're after something that would act as a router, not a bridge.

Yep as Steve says, its a no go, find a router with a WAN port, there are plenty to chose from here

The Asus RT-N13U has good reviews both running its stock factory firmware or DD-WRT.
