WAG160N without ADSL use

Does anyone know if it is possible to use a WAG160N as a straight forward router (wired & wireless) and to "switch off" the ADSL connection?  I have a cable modem and planned to connect the modem to WAG160N by an ethernet cable and then assumed that it would connect to the rest of my network and use the modem as the route to the internet.  But I cannot work out how to configure it to get this internet connection.  Any ideas?

Depends on the router model and firmware version. The WAG160Nv2 should have the "LAN 1 as WAN Port" function: http://ui.linksys.com/files/WAG160N/2.00.13/setup.cgi@next_file=Setup_WAN2.htm
