I have a quick question,
Could you point me to some reference material about configuring my WAG320N to use my cable modem via Ethernet port 1. I've seen it mentioned that's its possible, however I've been unable to sort it out myself.
And before you ask, I've brought the DSL router as I'm moving in the next 12 months and my new base will not have access to cable internet and I'll be reverting back to DSL.
Thanks in advance,
Solved! Go to Solution.

Actually in this case your wrong, but thank you for the fast reply.
After some playing around, it seems that the WAG320N is specifically setup to configure Ethernet Port 1 as a WAN port and you can route all the internet traffic through the cable modem via the WAN port you have just configured.
If anyone is interested then load up your routers config page 192.168.1.1 by default.
Click on Setup
Next to Ethernet Connection: Select the radio button labelled Use as WAN Port
Most standalone cable modems will have a static IP so under the Connection drop
down box select Static IP.
Enter your Cable modem's IP address, subnet mask, default Gateway and DNS address's.(These should have all be supplied by your ISP)
And finally click Save Settings at the bottom of the screen to commit your changes.
Then connect to your WAG via the Ethernet switch or Wireless connection and you should be good to surf the web.
Hope this helps anyone else that is trying go use a cable modem through the WAG320N or similar device.

I agree, I went through a small panic mode after I opened up the box and couldn't see what was staring at me in the face.
But after a little bit of caffeination(love my espresso machine) I saw the word WAN and a light turned on in my head
Well I hope this helps other people.
