    I have a Netgear DG834 modem and a Asus RT-N16 router (running tomato firmware).

    Anway, I want to completely disable the router functionality on the Netgear, so the Asus is basically doing all the work.

    I found a way to put the Netgear in Bridge mode, which immediately loses internet connection. I then go into the Asus router and enter the PPPoE settings (plusnet login details )

    However, I simply cannot establish a connection when the Netgear is running in modem only mode.

    Anyone know anything re. what I am trying to do to lend me helping hand?

    What exactly are you trying to achieve?

    Use the Netgear as a Modem and the ASUS as a router?
    Use the ASUS as a Modem Router and the Netgear as a Switch or Access Point?

    Think you're getting the bridge mode mixed up with modem only mode.

    You shouldn't be using the Asus to connect to the internet, but as a DHCP server.

    Netgear - modem mode - keeps internet settings - should knock off DHCP, check.

    Asus - Should just be used as wireless & DHCP.

    I put the Netgear into "modem only" mode. I want to use the Netgear as just the modem and the Asus as the router.


    I went into the hidden config page on the Netgear modem to change it to modem only.

    Well this is what I did with my Virgin media hub and Cisco 4200:
    Media hub in modem mode using standard firmware then connected the Cisco router to the "PORT 1" Ethernet port => Internet port on the Cisco router and that works great.

    Any one using the Cisco routers new firmware that the new "Internet" firmware requires a working Internet connection to make changes to setting on your router. Other then that it works quite well.

    I tried a different firmware of Tomato and Voila.

    Strange but true.
