    I want WiFi via TP-Link and the Netgear to be the modem. I successfully flashed OpenWRT (Barrier Breaker r40887) onto my TP-Link TL-WDR4300. I set my Netgear DN2200 to Bridge mode. But I still can't access the internet.

    I called my ISP (Netvision). I entered my UserName and PW into the Netgear Router
    Under "Basic Settings".
    Entered xxxx@INetvision and the correct password, and successfully connected to the internet. (Worked: Laptop<->Netgear(with Username and PW)<->Internet)
    In this setup I can Ping NetGear at address 10.0.0.1.

    Then I did
    Laptop<->TP-Link<->Netgear(with Username and PW)<->Internet
    That didn't work
    In this setup I'm able to Ping TP-Link at 192.168.1.1
    but I can't Ping NetGear at 10.0.0.1
    What do you think the problem is?

    Also, I think that my UserName and PW should be entered in the TP-Link OpenWRT router, not the Netgear (bridge).

    I'm on Windows 7.

    Problem solved.

    This is now essentially two networks. The TP-Link network, and the Netgear network.
    On the old Netgear router. I did Factory Reset and entered the username and password for the ISP.
    I "created" a WiFi name and password (the router setup demanded it), but then disabled it (ESSID disabled, and don't show).

    On the TP-Link OpenWRT.
    I set the DNS address.
    On the Interfaces / Wan I set the IPV4 Gateway to 10.0.0.138, which is the IP for the Netgear.

    All parts are happily working.
