Question DU and etisalat aztech wireless box

Hi, i have just moved from abu dhabi to jumeira lake towers. DU has been connected and works ok on wires. i have the etisalat standard aztech wireless router box, has anyone used one of these to set up wireless network. it is an adsl router but was used as a network router when in abu dhabi.
i have read easy method is to buy a non-modem router but i know there is a way to use the one i have (and save 250dhs)
thanks for any help

apparentently etisalat and DU have 2 diffrent router and you need to get the one the could get work with it ! since you are in JLT , go to giant at ibn Battuta and ask them for the wireless divise of DU ! i guess it might cost about 200Aed ,

Sure you can use your Etisalat wireless modem as WIFI router only
Simply connect your LAN switch interface (not the modem) to the DU internet wall socket and that's it.

@Helios, thats how it was used in abu dhabi. but i think i need to change some settings on the aztech for DU? if i just plug the ethernet from the wall in to the same (port 4) socket, nothing happens. do i need to tell the router where/what the DU network is?

thanks for help and advise (see pm) Helios. got it working but it really tried its best not to work. and i think it loses its settings if i turn it off again. i am wondering if it has been 'knobbled' by eti$alat.
maybe just buy a simple router if i get any more problems.
