I think I already know the answer to this but I just want confirmation...

This ADSL modem has two outputs - USB and LAN.  Does this mean you can have two devices connected to them modem e.g. USB to PC and LAN to Xbox360?

Cheers

Ah, things are never quite what you think...
D-Link Technical Support: "Yes, this is correct.  You may have two connections going through simultaneously."

Interesting, I always assumed that these were just how you wanted to connect the modem to your pc... either USB or LAN.  I only thought that a router could have multiple connections...

the linux firmware on those d-links internally creates an 802.1d bridge (without STP) between the ethernet port and the usb port, the usb port uses an ethernet-over-usb driver. watch out you dont set an ip on your PCs outside the range of 10.1.1.1 - 10.1.1.30 (?) the default NAT rules in those routers is retarded

edit: oh sorry, it's the 302 with that IP range limit, not sure about the 502.

yes this is true you can have two devices going in with the 502t i've got the ethernet cable in with my pc and the usb going through to my laptop and works perfectly fine, you have to install ur usb with the cd it came with it, if ya dont know how
go to START>My Computer>(insert the cd) quit the program that pops up> on the cd drive picture right click it then it will say explore > go to the 2-3rd folder and you will find a program and another folder saying USB go their and install then restart your comp.
