I currently own an ADSL modem. I am planning to buy a D-Link DIR 600 Wireless Router, for setting up a wireless network to play Counter Strike with my buddies. I have a few questions.
How do I set up the router? Am I correct in thinking that I should connect my telephone wire to my modem, my modem to my router, and then my router to my PC?
If I switch on WiFi on the router and let my friends connect to the network to play CS, will the game be actually be played locally or through the internet?
How do I set up only LAN-sharing, without internet? Is it easy to switch between LAN-only sharing and traditional internet sharing?
EDIT : My ADSL modem is also a router, but it has only 1 ethernet port, which is currently connected to my PC. So I will be connecting my wireless router to my ADSL modem/router.
To add to question #3:
After I finish playing CS, I want to be able to continue using the internet on my PC, after switching off WiFi; i.e., stopping my router from beaming my internet connection. How do I do that?
