Quick question. Slack installation modem


I'm installing Slackware 9.1 (again) and have gotten to the part where you pick a modem or something.
How do I know which one to choose?

This is what I have:

Router - Netgear WGT624.
Modem - Zyxel prestige 600 series.

I don't know
Since I have a router should I choose "no modem"? And perhaps try to fix the internet connection after the installation is done?

Probably a safe bet to skip the modem, then ...

During set-up ... do you know whether
your router functions as a DHCP server,
or are you supposed to use a fixed IP?


Cheers,
Tink
