Can I use my ADSL wireless modem (Internet source) to provide service to a wireless router?

Can I use my ADSL wireless modem (Internet source) to provide service to a wireless router? Modem is Visionnet ADSL2+4 port wireless model M505N
Router is Belkin AC1200 DB wifi dual band AC+ gigabit model F9K1113v2
Building layout prevents a wired solution.
Router would provide network access to TV and printer as well as boost wifi signal...

I have been searching threads and saw the need for hardware info up front.
It does not mean I know what I am doing...
Thanks for any help.

    Your Visionnet is a gateway device which has both the DSL modem, and a Wifi router all in one device. You should try and connect the TV and printer to it.

    If your WiFi signal is not adequate, you could put the Belkin router on as an additional access point.

    It's the building layout and construction (also phone line entry point) that prevent moving tv/printer to the modem. Signal boost would just be a plus, not really an issue. I was hoping to be able to get them on the LAN and eliminate "sneaker-net...

    Put your modem as your first device and disable the wireless. Connect the modem to the router, enable the wireless
    if you are going to use it. this will give you a double firewall, it is more secure.

    OK so where do I "put" the modem as first device? Then connect modem and router with RJ-45. Is any programming needed or do the devices sort it out? Then re-enable wireless on modem, right? I will need wireless because I cannot run wires from modem to router. Router will be at printer and tv area. Modem is 50' feet or so away at phone line entry point. Thanks for helping.

  6. Ist device is the modem . then hook it to the the router with a short Ethernet cable. Diable the wireless in the firsf device.
    enable the wireless in the router. it will transmit to any wireless device more than50 ft.
  7. Where is your computer?
  8. I need the router at the tv/printer station for Ethernet connections. All computers are wifi capable. Will need the modem to be wifi enabled so as to talk to the router without ethernet cable.
  9. Please take a look at this and you will see that what you want to do is not going to happen.

    You need to get a wired solution into your TV room. from the out side or through the attic. You will need a computer in the tv room to do the set up.

    What you want is an independent wireless switch. That is above my pay grade but I will check when I can.
