Thanks in advanced
Should be fine. Linksys routers are very easy to set-up.
As you use an STB, rather than a standalone modem, you'll need to either a) clone the MAC address, of the PC currently connected to the STB, onto the router's WAN port, -or- b) go through this
again with one of the PCs once it's all set-up. Either option is easy.
There's also a thread with wireless networking info here: http://www.cableforum.co.uk/board/sh...ad.php?t=16296
And, a very important thing to do when you set-up a wireless network is make sure you have security
. Info on that is here: http://www.cableforum.co.uk/board/article.php?a=12
