IF it is possible (can I use a bigger font for the "IF"?) it would different from model to model.

What brand / model is your wireless gateway?

Just incase I am going to ask this now, can you still return it and get a normal access point if it will not work?

It sounds like a Westel gateway of some sort. They usually act as NAT routers for the DSL connection.

Why disable the routing function, though? So long as the Modem's LAN side and the wireless router's LAN side don't use the same IP address subnet, you should be in good shape.
