What functionality do I need to shut off in order to use a Netgear wireless router as only an access point?

I currently have a Linksys router that is connected to the internet with a static IP.  I have several machines hooked up to this router, however I would like to create a wireless access point using a Netgear MR814 v2.  All of the instructions revolve around who my ISP is and crap like that.  I just want to know how to use the router as basically a wireless switch, passing packets onto the wired gateway.  Any help?

MR814 v2 is not an Access Point.  You need the Netgear WG602. You can Use the MR816, however your wireless network would be on a different subnet.

You can also consider this:

if you can use your Linksys Router as a switch, You can use the MR816 as your Router and connect the Linksys to the MR816 as a switch.

Basically, I had the right idea to disable the DHCP, but the kicker was that I was using the WAN port and the "feed" from the Linksys had to be plugged into one of the other ports.  If anyone wants to know, I think that Netgear sucks.  :-)   Thanks for the help.
