After buying the new router I am having a lot of troubles, and nothing is working anymore as it used to be… A download manager I was using regularly without any issues now crashes all the time in a totally random way (sometimes after many hours, sometimes after few minutes ), and the tech support is pretty useless because they only blame the firewall and provide no real solution. On a side note, I already tried to disable firewall, but it didn’t solve, so I still have no idea what it the cause. The only thing I know for sure is that everything started since when I installed the new router (a TP-Link TL-R600VPN).
Now I’m tired of all this crap and I decided to buy a new router hoping to solve all of this once forever…
Currently my choice is the Asus N66U, but my real problem is about the modem.
After searching in many stores, I noticed that there are only two brands producing modems: D-link and Tp-link.
I bought two D-link and both died after a couple of days, so I’ll never buy anymore that crap. The TP-link I’m using right now seems pretty unstable, so I’d like to get something better. I also have a linksys AM200, but that modem was used with my previous router, the one I replaced after getting a lot of disconnections. In the doubt that this modem is damaged too, I prefer to get a new modem anyway.
In a store I found a Linksys WAG120N that is a router with embedded modem. Because of linksys should be a more reliable modem, I’d like to use the asus router with the WAG120N modem.
Is it possible to do that? The linksys has a telephone line connector and 4 LAN ports, so how can I connect the linksys to the asus then? Is it sufficient to connect a regular LAN cable from any LAN port of linksys to the WAN port of asus?
Even more important, is it possible to disable the router in the WAG120N so it can be used as modem only?
