Re: Router Set Up
Often times you can get guides for home set up for your modem that you can download and follow to check if your modem is hooked up properly. So you could that to verify that everything is properly set up before you install your router. And the router you purchase should come with instructions to set it up and the exact steps you have to take to add it to your modem.
Also I'm guess your home phone is your only phone line? I don't know about other companies but D-Link routers has fairly decent tech support and could walk you through and trouble shooting you might have. But if your only phone is your land line and you lack a cellphone to use it could be tricky to talk to tech support.
Keep us posted.
