    I have a pocket wi-fi being shared by 3 laptops.. I want to connect a Zyxel Wireless N-lite Home Router so that I can also plug-in other LAN connected devices, e.g. VOIP phone. Is there a way to connect it or are there other devices I need for this internetworking. By the way, currently the router is connected to WiMAX broadband modem which I want disconnected already due to low available bandwidth.

    The laptops OS are XP, Vista and Windows 7 and MacOS.

    Thanks very much guys and more power to you.

    This Pocket WiFi? If so, note the five gadget limit, and you are already connecting three.

    Don't know if it will work with your unit, but in general a wireless bridge (or AP client) is what "extends" a wireless network to an ethernet segment. Some routers support this mode and most do not. Check your user guide or configuration pages.

    If it works the wireless bridge may or may not count as one of the five connected gadgets.

    I can't, but the user guide and/or quick setup guide for the other device should be all that is needed. :)
