Can I use a PPPoE broadband router to make my ADSL wireless?

I have a Netgear WNR-2000v2 broadband router (for PPPoE connections such as iBurst). I am getting a 4MB/s ADSL line soon which comes with an ADSL modem (not wireless)
Will i be able to connect the modem to my netgear router via ethernet and then connect to the internet wirelessly?

Link to my router: WNR2000

Link to my modem: Billion ADSL modem

It seems to have all the properties of a typical router so I don't see why not. I can't tell you for certain as I have never used the particular model though.

I've not used those particular pieces of equipment, but I've done what you're talking about before and had no problems. Just plug your router's WAN port into the modem's LAN port and connect your computers to the router.
