WAG354G - can I make it function as a router?

    I've bought a WAG354G ADSL modem/router/gateway. Unfortunately my broadband is through my cable TV, and the set top box only has an ethernet port, not an ADSL port. The central TV/ISP server takes care of dynamic IP assignation to the set-top-box (STB).

    To get my connection to work, i've had to: plug the STB into an ethernet port on the 354G; go to the STB and view it's IP address (on the TV); put my 354G in DHCP Relay mode; and assign the DHCP Server as the STB IP address. As I've said, this does work. However, everytime the STB is rebooted it is assigned a new IP address, so my 354G won't know where to look (i'm guessing, I haven't actually tried this yet as the cable was only installed last night).

    The cable company support use with wireless routers, but the engineer pointed out that as my 354G is expecting to get it's Internet connection from it's ADSL port, it's not going to work very well.

    Can I make my 354G act as if it's a router? Or does anyone have any bright ideas that will help me avoid buying a new router? Any thoughts, advice or tips would be really appreciated.


    ps - my current setup means I can't seem to find the correct IP address for my 354G, so admin changes are impossible...
