How do I use a Zyxel P660 router as just modem so that I can connect a WRT54GL router in cascade?

I have a Zyxel P660HW-t1 v2 router (which has a DSL port) and a WRT54GL router (which does not) and the exact same situation as in this thread (UPDATE: the connection between both devices is the important part, since I have been able to set the zyxel router to act as bridge by itself quite nicely. I have accessed my internet connection directly through a PC using PPPoE without any problems, the issues arise when I try to connect the WRT54GL router between the zyxel "modem" and my PCs).

You should be able to configure your P660 in bridge mode. Once configured in bridge mode configure you WRT54GL to obtain the WAN IP address and DNS automatically. Also, make sure that the WRT54GL's LAN IP address is not the same as the IP assigned to the P660 (192.168.1.1 if following the guide, so something like 192.168.2.1 should work). Make sure the DHCP server is turned on on the WRT54GL and you should be good to go.
