You can connect any router to the 3801
Can you explain why you want to use the dir655

I did the same thing (kind of), I have a Belkin ShareMax 300n running dd-wrt connected to my 3801. Here's what I did and it should work for you. At a high level, here's what you do to each.

Belkin (or your router) -
Set the WAN port for DHCP
Set your router management IP on a new network 10.10.10.50 for example (anything except the DHCP range of the 3801, which is usually 192.168.1.x)
Create a DHCP range on the same network
enable firewall

3801 -
Click on the 3801 icon (in the management page)
Click on event notification, click on router behind router
Go to the firewall, click on applications and pinhole DMZ
look for the MAC address of your router, click on it
make sure to click on the last option, "allow all applications", click save

Reboot the 3801 first and then your router
Your router should pickup the public IP address of your 3801
make sure you can get a DHCP address on your new network that connected to your router and test internet connection.
If done correclty, you you should be able to access your 3801

I've been following this thread because I have the same issue. Not to hijack the OP but I haven't seen any movement on the topic and I might need a little more hand holding to set mine up.

I have a Dir-655 D-Link router and the same At&T 2wire gateway.

I want to use my own router behind the Gateway and reduce the gateway's role to just a modem because I've configured my DIR-655 with quite a few static IP's for household appliances, Qos for others, port forwarding for remote access for some devices and i'll hate to set all that up again on the AT&T gateway.

Is there any way i can avoid having to Set my router management IP on a new network since I have some preconfigured static IP's on my network?

I figured out how leave my local network at 192.168.x.x and the AT&T gateway's network at 192.168.x.x also by just disabling the wireless antenna on the gateway. Now everything seems to work as it did before.
