(Don't quote me) I believe all you would have to do is statically set your IP to the 192.168.1.x network and communicate directly. This will not work if you are behind your router that is also 192.168.1.x network. You could connect directly, normally, if your router network was 192.168.2.x also. I haven't done this as yet but I believe this is how it works. The primary block to communication is just that in bridge mode you wont have DHCP coming out of the actiontech to spoon fed PC's you put on its network.
