Re: [Home Network] Home Networking > Westell 327w VersaLink as W

Great questions!

I am actually planning to test our local Comcast service to see how they compare to my DSL service, so having a wireless router would be avoid having to get upgraded home networking services that close to triple the price of Internet service. Unfortunately, cable Internet cannot use a DSL gateway as they are setup, but some, like the Westell, can be re-configured as Ethernet routers.

Also, I can have the Westell as a spare backup DSL modem, since I will be doing some work from home and I want to be up as much as possible.

For work, I will also need to travel, and some destinations will not have any wireless Internet, just a wired Ethernet connection. If I have my Westell, then I can use it to hookup wireless from any location without wifi available. (and yes, my laptop has wifi, but not some of the places I am planning to go).
