In order to use any of the current Wireless Cable/DSL Router as the main
Routing device you need to buy a Modem with Ethernet output connection.
Otherwise, you need an Ethernet card in the main computer; you connect the
Wireless Router as an Access Point to the Ethernet Card trough a regular
port on the Router. Configure the Main computer to Route with Windows ICS.
