Question about 2wire 2700HG-B Router (2700HGB)
I currently have a 2wire wireless router that has DSL ran through a standard phone line that connects directly into the back of the 2wire router. I wanted to connect to a linksys wireless N gaming adapter for my DirecTV On-Demand feature. The 2wire doesnot support N wireless.I have been told that I need to get either a G gaming adapter or an N capable router. I looked at a Linksys router that supports both G & N wireless but the connection to it requires an ethernet not a standard phone line connection. How do I get my DSL into it? It says the phone line should run to the modem , then from the modem to the Linksys router. Do I need to run my phone companies phone line ( that carries my DSL) into the back of my computer to an internal modem ( that I only assume it must have), then out to the Linksys router. I am confused because the phone line currently goes into the 2wire and then an ethernet cable goes from the 2wire to my computer for internet connection. This would seem to be the reverse.
Follow the dots -
2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.
Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).
Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.
If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.
