The trick about all this is that the software does not configure the computer, but the modem. So once it has been configured through a computer then plugged to a router, any computer plugged to the said router will have access to the Internet.
The whole process of installing/configuring will happen if you replace the old modem and/or plug a new computer directly to the modem.
you can't set teh modem to bridge mode, however, you can set the router to bridge.
The linksys should have bridge mode configuration in the uer guide.
connected the 2 router together
configure the IP address of the liksys to be inthe same subnet as the moem, but out of the range of the DHCP of the modem. ie. DHCP address 192.168.0.2 through 22.214.171.124, the linksys should have the IP address as 192.168.0.200
disable the DHCP on the linksys
setup the wirless just the way you would if ti was the modem.
connect from the modem LAN port to the LAN port on thelinksys. leave the WAN port open.
I figured out that with the RCA modems, if you pull them off the network ( disconnect the cable) , do a system reset (push the button on the back) for 45 seconds it goes into (what I call night rider mode) with the lights. After it is done with that it will give a class C address to the PC plugged into it. You can plug the gateway address into a browser and get into a configuration mode. There may be a place to reset the freq. not sure though. Sometimes you have to do it a few times to get it into this mode... once you lock in a configuration change I have never been able to get back into it without doing an other reset. Give it a try.
