rp614 router

i am having trouble removing the router to revert to single internet use.i no longer need the router for networking.

RE: rp614 router

What is the question - how to remove the device?  Unplug the ethernet cable that is connected to the device's WAN port & plug it into the NIC on the PC.  But this might not be a good idea for a variety of reasons.

RE: rp614 router

yes how to remove the device.what are the reasons for not doing this.

RE: rp614 router


Unplug the ethernet cable that is connected to the device's WAN port & plug it into the NIC on the PC.

One of the main reasons for not doing this, is because with this scenario there is now no NAT - so you protection from the internet is based soley on your software firewall.  There is really no advantage to removing this router, even if there's only 1 pc involved.  Is there something more that is prompting this question?

RE: rp614 router

we have already done the unplug and plug into computer. it would not connect to the internet.i need the router for my son so he can use it at his home.

RE: rp614 router

Whatever settings were on the router, now need to be set on the PC.

RE: rp614 router

RE: rp614 router
