Connecting a Linksys Broadband Router to a Netgear wireless cable modem gateway

I was wondering how i would go about connecting a WRT54GS v2  Linksys Broadband Router to a Netgear CG814WG v2 wireless cable modem gateway. the reason I'm doing this is to get extra modem ports and i was just wondering what steps i would take to make it work correctly.

If you are trying to add WRT to your network to increase the number of ports then,you can cascade linksys router to wireless modem.Connect the Ethernet cable from the LAN port of the wireless gateway to the linksys router  on the Ethernet port.Also,if the ip address of the Gateway is 192.168.0.1 then,change the ip address of the linksys router to 192.168.0.2.Also,disable the DHCP and Disable NAT under Advance routing on the linksys router.Power cycle the network and it will work.
