Hi Team,

I have existing 3COM N-router(HP V110 ADSL-A Wireless-N  Wireless Router model JE459A) with built-in ADSL+2 modem, firewall & router. I'm joining Telstraclear by the end of the month. I'm just wondering if I can disable the modem function of my router. Share my broadband connectiong by using the  Dynamic/Fixed IP in 1483 Bridge Mode to connect to the TCL supplied cable modem to share my wifi connection to  2 computer  and Ipod Touch. Is this possible?
The 3COM had the following connection protocol:
Bridge Mode
Routing Mode over ATM
Dynamic/Fixed IP in 1483 Bridge Mode

I'd highly doubt it. The device has no WAN port.

Bridge mode is no use because you're after something that would act as a router, not a bridge.

Yep as Steve says, its a no go, find a router with a WAN port, there are plenty to chose from here

The Asus RT-N13U has good reviews both running its stock factory firmware or DD-WRT.
