Hi guys,

I have recently bought a new netgear wireless router WGT624 108 mb which i have connected to my 302G modem. Before i installed my router i had one port forwarded for the use of utorrent. Unfortunately (upon deleting the forwarding rule) and setting up the forwarding on the Netgear, utorrent informed me that there was something wrong (i got a orange instead of green light). I wrote into the Netgear forum and was advised that i should put the 302g in bridged mode in order to fix this.

I was wondering if one of you nice people could possible explain this concept and tell me how to do it ?

Thanks !

if there is a seperate WAN and LAN port on the wireless router, plugging your network cable into the LAN port is what you need to do to use bridge mode

barf: if there is a seperate WAN and LAN port on the wireless router, plugging your network cable into the LAN port is what you need to do to use bridge mode

So should i just unplug the cable from the 302g out of the wan port of the netgear rounter and then into one of the lan ports ? In terms of configurations from the 302g side, do i have to alter the bridging section in the advanced menu ? I was under the impression that bridging was a process of turning the modem into a dumb modem that is no longer responsible for rounting traffic.

So confused
