I have a DVR, HTPC, Vonage, and Desktop PC hard wired to the 4 ports of my wrt54G router.
One way I think works is what Cisco calls cascading a router and I found their instructions to do it. But a Cisco router will cost me. Is there another alternative to adding more ports using my WRT54g? The modem does not have any more ports.
I am guessing I can just contect an out port from the WRT54G to port 1 on the Trednnet and then I can add other wired devices to the Trendnet.
If I am wrong, reply, else have a large day.
