Ethernet uses a Xmit pair and a Rec pair and equipment was divided into two types (Network and CPE) and the internal ports were wired different so the Xmit of one would connect to the Rec of the other. If you connect two of the same type together (two routers) then it won't work since you have Xmit to Xmit and Rec to Rec. A crossover cable was used to correct this. That was changed a while back with Auto-Sensing where the ports would look at each other and electrically match up the signal. I suspect the U-verse and your Router will use Auto-Sensing as default setting and a normal cable will work. You just need to give it a try and see what you get.

If you can disable DHCP on the DSL modem (or put it in bridge mode), you can let the Netgear handle giving out IP addresses and the wireless. Find the owner's manual online for the modem and give it a read.

Scrambled, you would connect the network cable from the Uverse to a LAN port on the Netgear. If you've disabled DHCP on the Netgear, then the Netgear is now acting as a switch or access point and should be ok.

Good to hear. As long as you don't use the WAN port on the Netgear, you should be ok. Any other DHCP related settings you need to change will be done through the modem's software.
