Setting a WGR614 router in bridge mode

I’m specifically using a Netgear WGR614v9 bridged to a Netgear WNDR8000 (acts as the network’s router, which is, in turn, connected to a Netgear CGD24N cable modem).

  1. Factory reset WGR614
  2. Connect PC to WGR614 (via ethernet)
    1. WAN Setup:
      1. NAT Filtering: Open
      2. Apply
    2. LAN Setup:
      1. LAN TCP/IP Setup | IP Address: 192.168.1.[2-255]
      2. Use Router as DHCP Server: Disabled
      3. Apply
  3. Connect PC to WNDR8000
    1. LAN Setup:
      1. Address Reservation | Add | [IP address as above; WGR614’s MAC address]
      2. Add
      3. Apply

…and you’re done!
