    I recently received a new 4 port wired DSL router from my ISP to eliminate connection drops. However, I cannot figure out how to get my wireless router to work with the wired router. The technician said it would need to be set up as a bridge. What are the steps to do this?

    The wired router is Netopia brand.

    Thank you

    That should be easy:

    I did it like this:

    Router 1 (connected to DSL) connected to the UPLINK of the WRT54.
    Router 1 is (
    WRT54 Internet connection can be dynamic (DHCP), if Router 1 has DHCP enabled or with static IP ( one like, std getaway
    On the wrt54 's Client side I configured and enabled DHCP.
    So router 1 just manages the DSL modem and the WRT54 "is" my network. With such a setup you can connect multiple wRTs to one router and have a subnet for each :)
