Does the Zyxel have an option to turn off its DHCP server? If so,
you could use the same setup as you were using with the Linksys.
Turning on or off NAT should not be a problem, because that is
normally only between the WAN port the the rest of the network. It
should have no affect on the machines connected on the LAN side in
this case.
