Well, try as I might, I just can't get it to act like a bridge.
Leaving the WAN port blank, it set's itself to 0.0.0.0 with a
subnet of 255.0.0.0. So, it's probably not designed to act like
a bridge. It's got a lot of features, so perhaps there's a way
to do it. I'll have to *gasp* call the help line.. But thanks for
your advice. That's probably the best way to go.
