    Then yes, it is pretty easy and HERE is a step by step with diagrams and stuff. Just shout out if something doesn't make sense.

    edit: it is the part that says using RG as a modem a short way down the page.

    Hello...hope you can help. We are seeking to do the same thing (put an RVS4000 behind a uverse gateway, effectively making the gateway a modem). Has this workaround been reliably working for you? I was prepared to do exactly this, but another user -- who hasn't actually done it -- called this approach a "silly hack." I don't care about labels , I just want to utilize an approach that works!

    So, please share how this has worked for you or if you adopted another solution. Thanks in advance!

    Its not a hack. Not sure what he meant. The gateway cannot be put in bridge mode so the second best way is to use the DMZ method listed above. I had Uverse for several years and had it hooked up this way. I never had any problems. It works fine.

    Thank you...I'm not sure what he meant either ; I'm certainly going to try this method and see what happens (and I'll report back).

    He also sort of bagged on the RVS4000, too, which is surprising because in 4 years we've only had one reliability issue with the RVS. Thanks for your post.
