Trying to hookup a wireless router to HP 1100

I recently moved and I have a Netgear WPN 824 I used with my cable modem. I have DSL now with my old 2wire HomePortal 1100 and can't figure out how to connect the two. I removed the HomePortal 1100 from bridge mode and tried connecting the WPN 824 to it with no success. I seem to have ran out of ideas.

DSL uses PPOE, which may be different than what you had previously. Cable, for example, uses TCP/IP.
Re-set the router to defaults, and follow the instructions for PPOE, which should be in your manual or setup disk. Your ISP may have this info on their site, or you can get it at the Netgear site:

Can i use a wireless cable modem gateway (netgear) to make my current dsl modem connection wireless.

If your DSL-modem has one Ethernet port, then use an Ethernet cable to connect from that port to the WAN port on your NetGear router. Then, the router will provide both "wired" and "wireless" connections to your computers & devices.

I'm trying to connect a netgear wpn 824 to a comcast router with windows 7

You are trying to set up the wireless router with the comcast modem, right ?
You can set up the router manually , without the disc.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online when connected to the comcast modem only.
If you have the router working already then you just need to add a computer to the network.

I cannot find my wpa or wpn on my wireless netgear 824 v2

You shouldnt be able to find the WPA or WPN you would have set this when you first installed and setup your wireless netgear router. Your supposed to write it down before the installation completes I had one. There should be a saved file that Netgear saved during installation that states your password and other info.

Wpn 824 wireless issues.

if you have set up the wireless connection and enable it in the router, i assume you have disconnected the wired RJ45 cable to the pc, if not do so, as the pc's ip address is still being sent to the wired adapter and needs to be giving the wireless adapter an ip address itself as you cannot have two. Either remove cable or dissable the wired network card and ensure you enabled DHCP in the router settings to automatically give the pc an ip address, ensuring that thw wireless card is also set to obtain an ip address automatically in the TCP/IP properties of the wireless network adapter.
