#2 Just above
is the directions to get your modem combo into bridge mode.Modem should now be in FULL bridge mode
#3 Then reconfigure your Netgear WNDR3700 for PPPoE.
I believe that is...
#1 In your Netgear WNDR3700 go to Basic Settings
#2 When asked if
, select Yes.Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?
#3 For the Encapsulation Type, select PPPoE(PPP over Ethernet)
#4 For the User Name, type in your full user name plus domain. For example email@example.com
#5 Type in the password to that account.
#6 For Service Name (If Required), leave blank,
#7 For Internet IP Address, select Get Dynamically From ISP
#8 For Domain Name Server (DNS) Address, select Get Automatically From ISP
#9 For the Router MAC Address, leave it alone.
If you asked what to do about, NAT (Network Address Translation), in this router leave it set to Enabled.
#10 Press Apply. If you desire to, you press test first.
#11 While I know in that thread that they tell you that
Keep in mind that once a modem is in Full Bridge mode, you will no longer be able to access the modem firmware unless you do a factory reset.
But please note, since you are on PPPoE.

Broadband Tech -> Networking -> Access to modem combo while in bridge mode
Before I got a Static Public IP, I was on PPPoE. However my RJ-WAN port router was set to Keep Alive, so I never noticed the issue that the OP of [modem/router] How to access 6100G's interface while connected? saw.
What I called Keep Alive: In your router is called Always-on in the Netgear WNDR3700 at Basic Settings.
Here are some info, that you need to know:
#1 If you select Manually Connect, one must log-in to the router to connect to the Internet. One must log-in to the router, to stop the connetion.
a) So, you would log-in to the router, go to Router Status
b) You would press that button labeled Disconnect.
c) Go to bed.
d) As long as your kids don't know what the user name and password of the router, they can't surf the net until you get into the router and force it to connect to the net.
#2 If you select Dial on Demand if the Maximum Idle Time has passed, one must send traffic to the Internet for the router to connect.
For example, if you start your web browser and go to google.com but it will not load right away if the Maximum Idle Time has passed - but by starting your web browser and trying to go to google.com, that will force the router to connect.
Pick your poison, regarding what to do in the Netgear WNDR3700 at Basic Settings for the Connection Mode option.
