I have a Motorola Modem hooked to Linksys Router. I am trying to use a VPN client via laptop. Is it possible to bypass the Router and set up an Ethernet connection to the laptop and a separate one to the router coming in from the same modem? Are there any kind of splitter cables that can be used to allow both the modem to be hooked up for the laptop and the router simultaneously? If so has anyone done this successfully? and how?
