Once I convert my ADSL router to a bridge, how to I access that router to manage it?
I have a Netopia 3346N VGx at 7.6.0r4 connected to my SBC ADSL line.  Right now, that unit is configured as a router with an external WAN and an internal LAN address.  That internal LAN is then connected to an internal Linksys router through its WAN port which then services by internal network.
I want to convert the Netopia router to a bridge, using my Linksys router as the gateway from the WAN to my internal LAN.  The Linksys router WAN will then have an external WAN address servicing my intrnal LAN.
Once I make that change, is there anyway I can access the Netopia router to configure it?  As a bridge, it really has no IP addresses, does it?
Thanks...
