Hello All,
I am currently setting up a couple new devices and wanted to ask a couple questions and ensure i am setting it up correctly.

Setup is:

Dynalink RTA-1025W in Bridged Mode Lan ip
Netgear WNDR3700 Router
Qnap TS-419p (currently only 1 NIC connected)
DHCP network starting at .10 on the netgear..

I would like to know the proper setup for the IP address's when using Bridge Mode please. I assume having the modem and router both having isn't an issue because they're on different sides on the router? this was the case on default setup. The modem on the WAN side and the router's on the LAN side of the netgear..

I have changed the router to to see if i could connect to the modem interface which i would like to be able to do if possible..
I also tried using different sub nets and setting the router to with no success connecting to the modem interface at

-So what should the IP address's be?
-Should they be on different subnets?

-Should I leave QOS enabled on the Internet settings on the modem?
-Also If I leave the wireless on the modem turned on and DHCP enabled, If a user connects what does that allow them todo?

Thanks all! please post any additional info required and i'll reply asap.

You need to be clear what interface you are talking about. For example you can not have the modem and the routers lan interface in the same subnet.

If modem is then the WAN interface of the router could be The routers LAN interface would have to be something like 192.168.0.x. It would be just find to have that ip range as your routers dhcp server which will server your lan pcs
