Is the Netgear "modem" really a router and if it isn't what connectors does it have?

Re: Post Office B/Band and Belkin Wireless - EDITED


[re: drexl_spivey] [link to this post]
 
I'm not into this but there's a fairly standard way of doing this. Look in Home Networking Forum where many instances appear.

It mainly involves switching off DHCP on the Modem/Router and ensuring its IP addy is out of range of the other router's DHCP. (or it might be the other way round).

EDIT: I hope the Belkin is not an ADSL modem and has Ethernet on the WAN side.

Assuming you are not using the Netgear as a bridge (i.e. it is contains your ISP login credentials and issues IP addresses via DHCP):

Disable DHCP on the Belkin, then connect a LAN port to the Netgear with an Ethernet cable.
You may need to check/change the the IP addresses of both devices to make sure there are no clashes.
