    I'm just having such a difficult time learning about networking so wanted to ask.

    I've bought Pepwave AP 200 to connect to citi-wifi service, but it was too weak for my needs. So, I ended up re-ordering Verizon DSL. I kept my modem, which is Westell 6100 (E90-610015-06, Rev. E) .

    I spoke to techsupport at Verizon, and was told that I should buy a router if I want to use laptop wireless. Is there any way I can make these two work so I don't have to have ethernet cable connected all the time?? The Pepwave AP200 has only one LAN port, so the techsupport said it looks impossible. From what I know, it is not a "classic router," but I am not really sure. These links shows what the configuration screen looks like:

    Is it possible?

    Oops, I forgot to say thank you. For giving me links as well;) Urgh... yeah, it looks like I'll have to get another router.
