Belkin F5D7230-4 802.11g Wireless DSL/Cable Gateway Router

I am looking at purchasing this router but have some questions the specs do not answer for me.

Is there anyone that has used this router with FC4? Is it compatible?

How do I access the controls if the software is in Windows? Is there a linux program that will access it?

What does it mean DSL/Cable Gateway Router? Will it replace my cable modem?

I have never used this device but after reading the manual (which is here).

To configure it you can either use the install wizard which is windows only or after you have connected it all, you open a web browser and go to, from there you can configure it.

It will not replace your cable modem. But you do need one which has an ethernet port on it. Which you then connect to the WAN port on the device.

Please have a read of the manual before you buy it.
