2Wire 2701HG-B and Linksys WRT54G

I'm going to be purchasing a network camera sometime soon and I'd like to be able to view it when I'm away from home. I'm currently using a 2Wire 2701HG-B modem/wireless router. I do not have a static IP address so I need DDNS support in order to view my camera from outside of my home network. I have an extra Linksys WRT54G with DD-WRT installed on it that supports DDNS.

What do I need to do on the 2Wire and on the Linksys in order to have the Linksys act as the router, and the 2Wire act as the modem only? I know that I need to put the 2Wire into bridge mode, but is there anything else I need to do in addition to that?

I've pretty much got everything else handled, I just need to know how to make the 2Wire gateway act as the modem only and not the router.

Thanks!

You need to enter your PPPoE info into the router. Once in bridge mode, the 2wire doesn't do any authentication.
