    Hi---I have DSL for my internet and i get this through a modem with ethernet connection. I now want to install Wi-Fi for my customers to access internet at my business. My question is what should be the central connector, the modem or the router? I bought a Linkys wireless g router for the wi-fi.

    That should work just fine.

    Just make sure when you are finished, you have enabled your wireless security.

    The router is logicaly the center of your LAN. It connects all other devices PCs, printers, modem and etc. to each other. Your linksys is an excellent choice. Follow the directions provided with the router. Please change the SSID to something other than "default" or "linksys". BTW; Its a good opportunity for a little advertising.

    You might want to consider the security aspects of this network. Do you use the network for your business? Do you want the customers to have access to your internal network machines? If not, I suggest you tell us the whole story, and we can suggest a more secure way to configure the network to separate your business use from the customer's Internet connections.
