How to convert a Wireless B router into a switch? Tags: Routers Wireless Switch Networking Last response: February 2, 2009 9:35 PM in Networking Share nowwhatnapster February 2, 2009 3:15:12 AM So I have a linksys wireless B router sitting here doing nothing. My friend needs a switch, He has 5 PC's to plug into a 4 port router. Thus the need for a switch. I'm pretty sure you can disable something on the wireless B router to just use its switching capability, and allow the first router to do the DHCP work. I would appreciate it if someone could confirm this and give me a little guidance on how to achieve all this.
