    I have a wired internet access server with built-in print server connecting
    to broadband internet. I need to have wireless connection in order to use
    my Centrino notebook pc. Recently, I bought a wireless broadband router
    with 4 port switch. Can someone advise me how to connect this new router to
    the existing server and set the new router to gateway or router mode.

    I can Not give you a definitive answer since I am not sure how you are actually
    connected to the Internet and how your Network is configured to do NAT.

    In most cases the Router should connect directly to the Internet Modem and the network
    should be configures peer to peer around it: http://www.ezlan.net/network/router.jpg

    However it might be that in your case the Wireless Router should be configured as a
    Switch with an Access Point and plugged regular port to regular port into a switch past
    your server.
