How to setup N750 as a bridge

There is a Netgear Prosafe FVS338 wired (192.168~) and I want to add a N750 wired to extend the network's physical range. On the initial setup the N750 detects 192.168.~ address and the FV338 subnet and makes it a 10.0~ network. I cannot connect to anything else that has a 192.168 address. Is that what I want to do a bridge?

How can I make the N750 hand out in the same range as the Prosafe (also want to add 2 or 3 repeaters that can connect to the entire network as well).

Any ideas?

Thanks.

DD-WRT is now available for this router, maybe their firmware will work in bridged mode.

I believe you want to use the N750 as a repeater only. Disable DHCP on the router and let the FVS338 hand out ip addresses.

Will you be connecting the fvs338 and n750 using a ethernet cable

This is normal for netgear routers the wan and lan must use different subnets

I was told it's ethernet. This is for someone I work with who does a lot of photo / SAN stuff on the side and a bunch of machines.

To use the n750 as a access point you need to....
give the n750 a unused ip within the fvs338 subnet [192.168.1.253]
Disable the n750 dhcp server
Connect a n750 lan port to a fvs338 lan port
Do not use the n750 internet port
