Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX thank you for giving me the opportunity to help you with your networking question.

 

To set the router up as an ethernet bridge, there needs to be a cable connecting the 2wire router to the Linksys. Do you have that in place already?
