  1. Hi,
    I just cancelled my service with centurylink as my internet provider. They didn't want the wireless dsl modem back. My new service provider did not provide me with a wireless router, just a lined modem. Is there a way I can set the versalink 327W to use it as just a wireless router?? My old internet was dsl. Now I have cable, so I can't just plug in my new service to the versalink, but I have oodles of ethernet cables to play with. There doesn't seem to be any kind of manual that will tell me this info and I don't know what settings to change so that its literally just a router.
    Thanks

    don't think that's possible.

    Both Cable & DSL modems have a primary input from the ISP and one Ethernet connection
    for the PC or router connection. If you've ever seen a router, ALL connections are Ethernet,
    even the primary or WAN side that connects to the modem. Your DSL modem not only doesn't
    have the right connection, but the circuit behind the DSL slot is all wrong
