Westell 6100 as a Bridge to New Router?
Enthusiast - Level 3

I was thinking about getting a wireless router so that I could connect a laptop and a tablet to the internet occasionally.   My connection now is a wired DSL connection with a Verizon Westell 6100 router.   Can I purchase a router and connect it to the Westell 6100?  Should I replace the Westell 6100 with something else?  Any recommended models or bridging methods?  This is for an apartment, not a house.  I've been slow to change technologies; I don't want to break something that isn't broken. 

Thank you.
