Hi
I have a Thomson Modem/Router which I want to set up as a modem only connecting to a TP-Link WDR4300 wireless router.     I have read articles about half bridging, etc but am not sure of the best way to set this up.
Cheers
Richard

At the bottom of the home networking page in the Thomson admin ui should be "Assign public IP address to a device.".

The Thomson then handles the authentication but hands the IP to the device (router or other device) that you assign.

You may need to make sure the TP Link is using a different LAN network, eg: if the Thomson is using 192.168.1.x configure the TP Link to use 192.168.2.x for LAN and DHCP. Can't remember exactly if this is needed or not.

Cant really offer anything except I recently tried doing this and what a monumental waste of time it was. Despite Ragnors and sidfx good advice I just couldn't get the dang thing to work. $90 and a draytek later job was done in 15 minutes. (see my Netgear / gargoyle thread below). Good luck!
