Hi

I'm changing flats. The new flat has wired broadband. If I bring my wireless router over will that gives us a wireless network immediately or would I need to ring the ISP & tell them we are swapping over to wireless? I think I know the answer to my question but thought I'd ask to make sure.

 

Thanks.

Hi, I presume your wireless router (that you are taking with you) has a ADSL modem in it, if so all you need to do is change the PPPoA user/password details to the account of the current (new flat) account and you are away. Some accounts (newer xtra ones) dont care as the account details are tied to the port (phone line).

Cheers
Cyril

Ohh ok sweet az. It's a Dynalink RTA1025W. I was planning on re-setting it at the new flat & will expect to see a 5 bar unsecured network which I will then secure. My area of confusion was weather the ISP needs to know weather the connection is wireless or wired (like if they had to change some settings at their end?) but going by your post it sounds like it's not that complicated & I just need to swap the existing wired modem with my re-set wireless one & I'll be good to go.

Cheers

Um, the assumption here is that you know that a wireless ADSL router is going to replace the existing ADSL router, and therefore has to be setup for the existing ISP and LAN. Keep iin mind that the flatmates might have to update something if the local IP address changes.

If you have an Ethernet broadband router (as opposed to ADSL) then the WAN RJ45 port can connect directly to the LAN of the ADSL router. You will need some more complicated configuration if you need to get VoIP through 2 routers, because the 2nd router will block incoming VoIP calls and other peer to peer traffic.
