Re: Replacing dsl modem
Yes, that should work.. the only problem may be the Default Gateway address that could have been manually configured.. I would look at the config of the router and make sure you have this information written down, but otherwise it should be just plug and play (pray).. :)

I'm assuming that you have it either connected to a computer and the wall properly. You may have to have some sort of machine working and connected to the router in order for it to acknowledge the cable. Make sure that everything is properly plugged in. Try and turning off your router for one minute and then give it another go. Try troubleshooting by unplugging and reconnecting wires to the router. Are you using a Cable or DSL Internet Service Provider?
check your cable if it is connect to a modem or DSL/ADSL router then it must be straight cable;for more information regarding the cabling go to http://www.makeitsimple.com/how-to/dyi_crossover.htm;usually ip address and DNS address is assigned automatically by the modem or DSL router.so set your network connection to obtained ip address and DNS address automatically untill and an unless you are given the ip address and DNS address to be configured manually. check your ethernet card is working by pinging to 127.0.0.1;hope it sloves your problem
I would start by looking at the wiring in the house (from plug in the wall to the Demarcation line) make sure that is high quality wire and good connections. Then move to the Phone Co., get them to inspect the local loop wiring for bad connections/wire. Then move to FiOS (fiber optic technology), this will produce some amazing speeds, but you have to work with the phone co. or move to a faster technology such as Frame Relay, ATM, or ISDN, a burst asynchronous comm is your best bet.
If router is brand new you should have a set up disk. the set up disk will walk you through it or you might log onto Belkin site to see a walk through set up. If you can access internet from modem to router to internet. That means router is functioning properly. To go completely wireless you will need to secure your network and setup your access codes. Definitely use the setup disk to do this. A unsecured wireless network is a nightmare waiting to happen. Good luck
The cord that plugs into the DSL filter is a phone line and the other end plugs into your DSL modem. Also, every other jack that has a phone or fax or answering machine or caller id box has a DSL filter as well, in between the jack and the device.
