I know there is no modem. I never ever even referred to one.

Turning off SSID is not valid security. There are lots of tools to see the network anyway. Use WAP security at least. I simply choose an SSID that won't attract people.

Correct, turning off the SSID broadcast ALONE is not good security. Turning off the SSID will only keep your network from being visible to other casual users and drive by's. Very common practice in the business world. Out of site is mostly out of mind.

I thought after the many conversations pertaining to basic connectivity and networking I might provide an easy to follow and simple EXAMPLE of what a small sound network could be...

Hi Bob,

Really useful graphic - just great! Thank you!

Best regards,
Bob Charest

I suppose it would have been more correct to state it's not a DSL connector, T1 port or WIC adapter. The fact is that on this particular SOHO device the port is simply another switched port. Any standard patch cable will work.

The WAN port can't be in the same network as the LAN.  That would never work.  The WAN port has a DHCP client, the LAN a DHCP server for starters. 

The WAN port is the input to the router, the LAN may or may not have a convenience switch, most do.

That would be understood. The point is that Rob is able to attach to his house network directly, not the case if it were a WIC card or DSL connection. You're splitting hairs and the intent is to keep the post simplistic.

Question...
If I happen to only have a WiFi enabled router to use as a WAP connected to a switcher in  a wireless rack, how do I configure it to act only as a WAP?

What's the model and manufacturer.

In this case that port is simply another 10/100/1000 switch port, the same as the other four (4) on the box.

Not splitting hairs, I read this as you were suggesting you can use the WAN port as another switch port.  I was clarifying so someone didn't make that mistake and wonder what was wrong.

I don't have a specific model in mind but thought there would be settings common to WiFi enabled routers that could be changed.

Look for a model that allows you to turn off the router. I'll do some searching tonight if you like.
