I have a Linksys DSL/Router combo. It was previously used for my DSL connection. I switched to a cable connection now, using Motorola cable modem.

Is it possible to create have the cable connection routed through the DSL router? I read somewhere that some people managed to do it but I am not sure.

The cable modem uses a WAN port with dhcp. What program do I need to forward this to the other ethernet ports? Or to the wireless port ?

Here is a more detailed description about my problem: http://sourceforge.net/apps/phpbb/openwag200/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4.

This doesn't have anything to do with unix/linux. superuser.com is a more appropriate place for this. – Patrick Oct 1 '13 at 18:33

There seems to be a solution here http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/wag200g-cable-modem.33006/. But I' m unsure if this can work with the wireless internet. IMO this can only work with the other 3 ethernet ports. How would I make it route the connection through the wireless? Here is another thread http://www.linksysinfo.org/index.php?threads/system-lineup.29470.

I suggest highlighting that the link starts off by "modding" the router with "OpenWAG200" :). – sourcejedi May 27 '13 at 10:18
