Want wireless N. Have 2wire G. Can I attach my Buffulo Tech N router?

This is just a first feasibility check. Just before I moved to Uverse I purchased a Buffulo Tech wireless N router. Now that I am on my Uverse 2wire router I am back to "g speeds." Is it possible to connect my "old" N router to the 2wire. Turn off the wireless on the 2wire and use the Buffulo?

 

If it is possible, feasible, I'll ask a few more questions about how to actually do it.

 

Thanks,

Dannveld

Yes, you will need to turn off your wireless on your RG and connect your router to the RG and place it in the DMZ in the firewall.  Many people have had sucess doing this.

Shouldn't be a problem, quite a few posts here from people that have done it.  My computer is hard wired so I can't be much help as far as setup, but I'm sure someone will come along with specifics.
