I am getting internet from a shared LAN (not dsl) from my local ISP. I can connect to the internet using any device if I plug in the LAN cable coming in and using the IP settings provided by ISP. I have an extra Zyxel P-660HN-TxA router/modem. Can I plug in the internet connection into one of the LAN ports of this router and use wifi access point of this router to connect to Internet? How can I configure it?

some routers have "Range Extender" features which allows you to use a special ethernet port to share the internet coming from that port, on a PC however you need a WIFI Capable one and either use windows built-in features to make your pc a hotspot or download a 3rd party software to make your pc a hotspot.

It is going to depend on your ISP. Most ISP will only allow a single device on the connection...ie they will only give you one real ip. This means you must have a actual router that has a ethernet WAN port to connect multiple devices.

If they allow multiple devices then you can use your DSL router as a AP by cabling it to the lan and disabling the DHCP and changing the IP to not conflict with the ISP. It is much more likely if they are not giving you real IP and are using private already...in effect THEY have a router doing NAT to share one single real IP. This is very uncommon

Thanks Bill, I think that answers my question. They gives only one real IP. So the router I have is of no use, I have to get another router, Thankyou.
