Bridged Router reconfiguration help 500 points

we have two offices connected by a leased line. These routers are configured as bridges as both sites are on the same network range.

We need to reconfigure the routers so that we can readdress the remote site
Thew central site will stay on the same address range.

1. I have never come across routers being used bridges, so how can i do this?
2. Do I need to take the routers out of bridged mode? If so how can I do this?

1. Easy. Just configure them as routers. :-)
2. If you're only doing one protocol (like IP), then yes.

First router:

ip routing
int e0 (or whatever interface)
 no bridge-group 1 (substitute actual bridge-group number)
 ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
int s0
 no bridge-group 1
 ip address 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0
router eigrp 1
 network 192.168.1.0
 network 192.168.2.0
no bridge 1 protocol ieee

Second router:

ip routing
int e0 (or whatever interface)
 no bridge-group 1 (substitute actual bridge-group number)
 ip address 192.168.3.1 255.255.255.0
int s0
 no bridge-group 1
 ip address 192.168.2.2 255.255.255.0
router eigrp 1
 network 192.168.2.0
 network 192.168.3.0
no bridge 1 protocol ieee
