Question about Arris SURFboard SBG900 Wireless Router (DHSBG900)
I have a Motorola surfboard SBG 9000 Wireless router . Which connects to my cable company for internet . But I wanted to move to DSL but still use the router as a wireless router .
ie : DSL -> DSL modem -> (Connected by a ethernet cable) Motorola Surfboard (WIFI) -> Computer (WIFI)
This would help me a lot else I would have to invest in a Wireless router
I doubt it will work. most times the cable companies give you a modem/router all in one box. the problem is there in no inbound connection to recieve an internet signal other than the cable cord connection. with the dsl modem you will need a seperate router. they cost around $40-50 on avg

I agree with maingame123, the SBG900 is not intended to receive a third party connection and broadcast it via the built-in WiFi.
I do not have any firsthand experience with the particular scenario, but I see no reason that this should work. Sorry :(
