Lan to Wan Port? Technicolor TC8717t Gateway Modem/Router

Ok I know how to configure this modem in Bridge Modem via the Web GUI; My question is this:


There are no WAN Ports on this modem, only Lan Ports. So if I use another router that does have a Wan port, is it as simple as connecting the TC8717t Lan Port(Port 1?) to the 2nd Router Wan Port? Tia

    YES. Also remember to reset your router to factory defaults before you connect to LAN Port #1 and power up for the first time  (the WAN port is the coaxial cable connector).
