I have DSL here at my house and the DSL came with a 2Wire modem/wireless router. It's pretty good as far as reaching most of the house and I have a couple of powerline adapters for the furthest places.
I was thinking about turning the 2wire into just a dumb modem and turning off the wifi part. So from what I've read, I need to set up the Dlink DIR-625 to handle the PPPoe parts so I have my username which is an email address and I got my password from AT&T so I'm thinking about trying it. Any thoughts/instructions about it and does anyone know if I do turn the 2Wire into a dumb modem will I lose the LAN ports on it also or will they still function. I have my WD Live, Verizon Network Extender, DishNetwork satellite box and Panasonic BluRay player which all use direct connections to the router.
Thanks for any help.

If you configure the 2Wire as a modem you loose the LAN ports last time I checked.
Why don't you use the D-Link as an Access Point. It will give you the N wireless network plus three additional LAN ports.
