    I have an existing 2wire 2701 (ATT DSL) modem/router and like to disable router option (bridge) to fully run everything from Belkin N+ router. I currently have the belkin installed as on belkin instructions but believe the 2wire is still doing routing and I am having networking issues (delays, disconnects, etc). Can anyone help and suggest best way to configure these two devices?

    thanks,

    jorge.

    As you said, bridging the 2WIRE is the best option.+

    How to Bridge the 2WIRE 2701HG

    After doing this, you'll have to enter the account name/password and PPPoE configuration for the WAN setup of the Belkin router.

    You don't have to do step 4, it'll work if you leave that alone.
