I've had a Zoom X4 ADSL Modem for a while, connected to my PC via CAT5. I've recently picked up a cheap D-Link DI-524 Wireless (and wired) router which I've replaced my old Netgear switch with.
The instructions insist that I connect the Modem to the Routers WAN port vai CAT5 but if I do it just won't pick up an internet connection. If I connect the modem to any of the routers standard wired network ports then I have a connection.
So it works, and that's the main thing, but can anyone explain the purpose of the WAN port and the benefits of using that rather than the port I'm using now? And any idea how I configure the WAN port to work if I need to?
