Recommended Posts

Hello guys ! Today my dad brought home an older dsl router he found at his work, but our internet at home is provided via ethernet.  My question here is : Can I use the DSL router as an AP, or as an ethernet switch?

If I'm correct it should work IF it has an input for an ethernet connection, mine does. Try just plugging it in and see if it works or not.

Turns out that the feature was deleted from the newest firmware, which was installed on it. Downgraded it and it was just as you said ! Thank you !
