I am having a modem / router TD-W8951ND which works fine with ADSL cable (telephone cable). Since I am changing my broadband plan (they will be providing there own modem), I need to make wifi work with Ethernet cable as the source of internet.

I just want to know whether I can share my internet from ethernet cable to wifi using TD-W8951ND. If yes, how? I found a similar discussion here (not very conclusive) :-


Here is its User Manual:-


Could anybody please tell me if its doable or not?

Maybe the new router that the provider will install has wifi? From what I've read of the manual I'm not sure if this model is able to acquire or set an IP from/on a switch interface. If this is true, then what you want won't be doable.
