comment Text variables in MS Word 2010?
For the record, it's not for a letter, but a technical document where various variables change. Thanks for the pointer, I'll check that out.

comment Computer only accesses the internet when using a static DNS ip
The DD-WRT is a bit of a red herring for this issue, as plugging directly into the ZyXEL modem also has this issue.

comment Computer only accesses the internet when using a static DNS ip
Hmmm one clue here was that I had plugged the connected a LAN port of the ZyXEL modem-router with the WAN port of the DD-WRT router. I"ve remedied this, but 192.168.1.1 still directly accesses the ZyXEL.

Re: 'Anothe router in the network'. The ZyXEL is a modem-router.

Thanks for the advice btw - I do need to get my head around various home networking terminology, eg the diffence between a router and an access point, what DCHP is etc...

comment Why do some routers not have a WAN port?
@sawdust - I knew that I needed a VDSL2 modem, which is why I bought the ZyXEL modem. The problem was not realising that I couldn't use the TP-LINK as a wireless access point.

comment Why do some routers not have a WAN port?
Excellent, thank you. So to answer the question - is it just that this kind of modem router is a cheap 'single use in mind' consumer model?

comment Why do some routers not have a WAN port?
That's right, I'm wanting to use the TP-LINK router for wireless routing only. Would it be possible to use a RJ11 to RJ45 cable to connect the ZyXEL modem to the TP-LINK router, without losing speed?

That sounds awesome. Unfortunately where I work it's a huge hassle to install new software. I will check what they've got on the catalogue though.

@harrymc - I haven't used third party tool to check. It's a work computer, and we can't just install software when we want.
