Netgear DG834 Bridged Mode (PPPOE)

If you own a Netgear DG834 ADSL router, and for some reason you’d like to terminate the PPPoE connection on another device, you’ll probably be disappointed as we first were to see that there is no “bridge mode” option in the web interface, even after a firmware upgrade followed by a factory reset.

This doen’t mean however that you can’t. It’s just undocumented… Here is how I finally got it up & running, after trying several procedures found here and there. you need to get to the mode page which is hidden from the menu’s by going directly to the url. http://192.168.0.1/setup.cgi?next_file=mode.htm ; on that page you can set the device to operate in “modem-only” mode.
