    Hi

    Will it be possible to connect a Aolynk DR814 ADSL2+ Broadband Router to a Sitecom WL 312 300N Router through Ethernet ports?

    I want to connect 2 PCs to the Aolynk DR814 router.

    The Sitecom router is receiving from the isp cable modem.

    Why do you need both the Sitecom and the Aolynk?

    You can connect the PCs directly to the Aolynk without the sitecom.

    I need to wire 2 pcs: 1 desktop & 1 laptop in the same room
    I have the desktop in a room where wireless signal from sitecom router is very weak
    have only 1 utp wire from sitecom to that room, so i need a switch.

    no, you can just use a wireless booster. Or use an external antenna to boost gain on the laptop.

    Are you saying that a wire connection is not possible ?

    the Aolynk DR814Q pdf manual page 76 content says:

    TMU I need to create and/or config a static route, but I'm confused by the manual figure 5.38 example physical connection illustrating a Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer (DSLAM).

    What im saying, is you dont need an additional switch.

    Plug the DSL modem into the ADSL port on the router.

    Plug computer 1 into the 1 port and computer 2 into the 2 port.

    That's it.

    Look on page 2 , figure 1.2 and read the table below.

    Yes, but I don't have a ADSL line.

    The line I'm using is cable (coaxial?), the cable-modem is thomson I think.

    Thats fine. Plug the ethernet cable coming from the cable modem directly into the routers ADSL input then the computers into the other 2

    reboot everything. Router, modem, and computers last.
