    Hello,

    Right now I have an old router/modem. And I want to buy a new one that has QoS...i found Linksys WRT54GL. But it has no ADSL modem...

    So I am asking you, Is it possible to connect this linksys router to my router/modem? But in way, that the router/modem will no longer be a router, but only a modem.

    Thank you! And I hope you understand what I am trying to say....

    Yes this is possible. You need to set the old router/modem up connected to the wan port of the new one. Set the wan ip address and the ip address of the old router to addresses in a different range to your normal network. If you want to use the firewall on the new router then you need to set the old one to forward all ports to the new router.

    That new router you are getting can accept DD-WRT ;)
