Not sure if anyone here will be able to assist me on this matter, but I figured that this DOES fall into the networking category, so why not ask? I recently ordered a new dual-band router from Newegg (Asus RT-N56U). The unit that I'm currently using (Westell 7500) is a combo dsl modem/router that my ISP provides. Ethernet works flawlessly, but Wifi drops from time to time, and I NEVER get close to the 10 meg speed that I'm paying for via Wifi. Long story short, I want to disable the wireless aspect of my modem/router combo and ONLY use it as a modem to hook up the Asus unit to. I am somewhat tech savvy (enough to be dangerous,) but I don't really know much about setting up wireless networks and whatnot. I know the signal chain will be:
DSL -> Westell -> Ethernet port -> Asus' Ethernet port
Other than that, I am pretty well lost. Thanks in advance for any help!
