Assuming the TL-WR941ND does not have an AP only mode you have to log in to the TL-WR941ND, set up the wireless security, give it a fixed IP within the range of the modem it is being connected too (10.0.x.x generally for Bigpond modems) then disable all routing services. Mainly this means turning off DHCP and any firewalling.
You then connect it up to the ADSL modem by connecting LAN1 to the modem not the WAN port. Then other PCs connect via ethernet or wireless.
Alternatively log in to the Bigpond modem and set it to bridge mode (makes it a dumb modem), connect the TL-WR941ND's WAn port to the modem, connect a PC to the TL-WR941ND and set the TL-WR941ND up to do the ADSL connection stuff.
Best solution for your mum? Get her either a bigpond approved Home Network Gateway http://go.bigpond.co...ans-HomeNetwork (makes Bigpond support a bit easier)
or buy a wireless modem router like the TP-Link TD-W8960N, Billion 7700N, 7800NL or 7800N (if you think she needs gigabit LAN).
Then set it up with here Bigpond account details and swap out the Bigpond modem for it.
