Actiontec + DSL + NEtgear VPN firewall

I have a actiontec wireless DSL gateway that I got from TDS for my DSL connection. However I wish to set it up just as a modem. I am told that if I set the DSL gateway to "transparent bridge" mode and turn off NAT I should be able to hook the WAN port on the netgear VPN firewall upto one of the modems LAN ports and set the static IP I got with the modem to the WAN address of the Netgear VPN firewall. This being said everytime I tunr the actiontec DSL modem to transparent brdige after it reboots the internet LED wont come on at all. ANy ideas?
