Question for any fios networking gods....

Hello. New to the forums and have novice level networking skills. But I have a question for any of you amazingly brilliant minded networking gods. I have read all the FAQ on adding a router to an actiontec fios router and think I can handle all the setup once my wireless n router arrives. My question may be completely stupid but I can't seem to find the answer using search. The question is once I have hooked up the wireless n router to the actiontec and completed configuring it, can I use the LAN ports from my wireless n router as well. I mean I get I can use the wireless but will the other available LAN ports work as well. Thank you in advance for all your advice.

Yes, you can use both the LAN ports as well as wireless.

In my situation, I have two Actiontec routers in a master/slave concept.

For both, I'm using the wireless and wired ports. That way I have whole house coverage wirelessly and can can also have computers hooked up to the wired connections for those devices that don't have wireless connections.

The FAQs help a lot!
