The OP asked how to get the router into modem mode, not how to piggy-back on to it. Full instructions on how to do this are here I will say no more on this, I just hope anyone reading this post does not believe what you are stating.
      Looks like I am going to have to break this down for you.

      I said that that disabling wifi on the router turns it into a modem to go in line with what the OP wanted. His definition of 'modem mode' includes the modem handling the following:

      Now I could give him a long lecture on how conceptually this was wrong. Or I could just ignore it and play along and that's exactly what I chose to do.

      And there is no such thing as the recovery utility failing on Windows Vista and 7. It all comes down to your LAN card. Either you have one that is compatible or either you don't. (The utility wont work even on XP if you don't have a compatible card)

      Re: DG834GT Modem only mode?

      Ok guys, so I got a Windows XP machine and managed to put the DGTeam firware on the router. I set it into modem mode and then turn on the time capsule which is connected to the netgear router via the WAN port.

      I can't seem to get the time capsule to access the internet. It creates a wireless network which I can connect to but I just can't get the net working.

      Any idea what settings I should be using? I've tried a couple of combinations and none have worked.
