Hi
The LAN side and the Wireless of the Router would hold.
The WAN side (Internet) would have to be configured according to the nature
of the connection, and or, ISP's instructions.
P.S. Configure the Router to work on Wireless channel 11 to reduce conflict
with other neighborhood Routers that are probably set to default 6.
