Basically, I have purchased a modem router (Play Max N600 HD [F7D4401uk]), to turn my university internet (Which comes through an RJ45) into a wifi spot.
I previously had an F5D8236-4 v2, which worked fine, but this had an RJ45 WAN port, where as the "N600" has an RJ11 port.
Is it as simple as buying an "RJ45 to RJ11" cable?
I'm a little lost.
It would need to support using the WAN modem port as an Ethernet WAN port -- if it is RJ11 it cannot do that. You could configure it as a wireless AP by using one of the LAN ports, but then you have no NAT (routing capability) so cannot connect multiple devices.
Bottom line, I don't know that you can use that model as a router without a DSL connection.
Can you return it and get a wireless router, instead?
Ah right, thanks.
Yeah that looks quite good! Although I'm also looking for dual band networking, and guest network capabilities.
I'll definitely go for that if I can't find what I'm looking for tied into one.
Yeah that's what I meant sorry, simultaneous dual band.
Hmm, that's great then! I'll look at my options, and before buying, I'll just post the router I want on here first to make sure it's a good one! Haha.
