Well after snooping around google i found this and this looks about correct
Bridge modem.
1.Open browser (IE) type 192.168.1.1
2.user: admin password: password
3.Select My network „³ select Newtowrk connection (to the left )
4.Broadband connection ( select the tab under action )
5.Look under Vc¡¦s select the tab under edit column. ( to the right )
6.Under Protocol: Set to bridge
7.Bridge Mode: bridge.

Turn off DHCP
1.network connection
2.Lan
3.private lan the first one.
Uncheck the first option under DHCP.

I went into the setting and looked at this stuff,but im not going to do it yet,cuz i dont have my router right now,but can someone confrim this is correct?

The Netgear 7550-N has the address of:
192.168.254.254, not 192.168.1.1
admin: admin and not admin:password

My question is, why are you thinking of bridging to a second router anyhow? What exactly are you trying to achieve ?
You just got this DSL service from Frontier a short time ago, so I'm having difficulty understanding, without clarification, just what you're trying to achieve here with bridging to a second router.

This Ip 192.168.1.1 was for the 7500 the 7550 and 7500 are pretty much the same in settings.

Strider7Sfga is correct, the default address is 192.168.254.254. The information in the 7500 BHSI bulletin, although intended for technicians that are setting up a business account, may be helpful to you.

So the pppoe user name is your frontier email address and password is your password from the account you made when you signed up for frontier?

Some modems did have a default of 192.168.1.1 (particularly former Verizon equipment); however, all 7550s should default to 192.168.254.254.

But yes, the firmware is nearly identical on them.
