2WIRE 2701 HG-B Bridge Mode question

This relates to the 2701 HG-B in my case, but I guess it's a general bridge mode question.

The IP of the modem web access interface is changed to 192.168.1.254. I kind of understand that you must be on the same subnet to access it.

Here is my question: just wanting to confirm but the modem interface is NOT accessible via WAN, right? The only thing connected to the internet is the router, right?

Just wanting to check my security on this. Planning on putting a 2WIRE into bridge mode and using a Netgear router.

Sorry if this is a noob question. Thanks!
