You need to call your INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER. You need a USERNAME and PASSWORD from your ISP when you set your modem to bridge. This username and password will serve as your connection authentication. Once the modem is already bridged you have to set the INTERNET CONNECTION TYPE on the router to PPPOe(that is where you type your USERNAME and PASSWORD). When you are already online, you might need to forward the port number for your ip camera for it to work.


Good Luck

Unable to connect to home ATT 2wire with new Belkin USB wireless


AT&T 2Wire routers function as both routers and modems. You can disable the router functionality by placing the router in bridge mode. In bridge mode, the 2Wire device functions only as a modem and forwards all incoming traffic to the device behind the 2Wire router. For example, you can use a different router instead of the 2Wire's built-in router by enabling bridging mode -- the router behind the 2Wire device will get the external IP address, and the 2Wire router won't interfere.
Step 1Type "Homeportal/management" (without quotes) into your Web browser's address bar and press "Enter" to access the Management page in the 2Wire router's Web interface.
Step 2Provide your 2Wire router's custom password, if you set one. The router comes with no password set.
Step 3Click "Configure" under Broadband on the Management page.
Step 4Type a period (".") into the "Disable PVC Search" box.
Step 5Set the value of the "VPI" box to "0" and the value of the "VCI" box to "35".
Step 6Set the "Connection Type" to "Direct IP" and click "Submit."
Step 7Click the "Configure Services" link on the Management page.
Step 8Uncheck "Enable Routing" and click "Submit."

2-Wire 3800HGV-B bridge mode


Hello my friend,
You can disable all routing functions for your Home Portal. I never advise this as a course of action as it typically causes more issues than it resolves - so procede at your own risk.

- use the button on the back to reset to factory state (hold for 30 seconds)
- browse to gateway.2wire.net/mdc
- click on configure under broadband link
- set ATM PVC search to disabled
- set connection type to direct IP
- click on configure services under the advanced heading
- take note of the text under "If you want to connect to the gateway when it is in bridged mode"
- un-check the enable routing box
- submit your settings

Good Luck!

I have a Linksys WRT54G router. The power went out the other day and I haven't been able to establish a connection since. I can connect when I run cable from the modem to the cpu, but not if I try using...


what is the model of your modem? if you said that you are able to get online when your computer is hooked up to the modem only, then it indicatest that your modem is not yet in bridge mode. Putting it in bridge mode will make your modem a "pass through" device thereby causing no conflicts in asking for ip add/connecting to your ISP. when your modem is in bridge mode, you should not be able to get online.
after setting your modem to bridge mode, connect your linksys router. if you have a pppoe connection, or one that uses username and password, have that set up in your linksys router. at this point, your router will be the one to ask ip adds from your ISP. 
you could also visit this site, http://www-ph.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_CASupport_C1&childpagename=PH/Layout&cid=1166859677881&pagename=Linksys/Common/VisitorWrapper&lid=7788193882H13, for further configuration of your router. as for your modem, try to call your ISP on how to set your modem to bridge.

How do I properly set up a D-Link Router with a Westell Modem? (#7125)
This FAQ is for setting up a BellSouth supplied Westell 2100/2200/6100 modem (Models A90-210030-04, B90-220030-04 and B90-610030-06/C90-610030-06, respectively) with a D-Link DSL router. Although actual screen shots vary throughout the DLink line, the instructions below are applicable to all models. Important Note: These procedures and pictures are based on the most recent firmware for the Westell. Other Westell firmware menus and screenshots are slightly different but the bridge options and functions are still available. It is highly recommended that you click here and update your Westell firmware.

This FAQ has 3 Major sections:
Section 1 - Overview
Section 2 - Westell modem configuration
Section 3 - D-Link router configuration information
Section 4 - Connections and power up

Section 1 - Overview
bred.gifImportant Note: Due to some known operational issues it is VERY important that you have the latest firmware on your D-Link router. Please go to the D-Link Support Site for firmware updates.
bred.gif The best configuration for networking a router with the Westell is to set the Westell to "Bridged Ethernet" mode and allow the router to do the routing and DHCP functions. The Westell is also a router with full DHCP functions and may not function correctly when connected directly to another router. Not changing the modem to Bridged Ethernet will result in double NAT'ing, increased latency, possible IP conflicts, or possibly a network that doesn't work at all.
bred.gif Before proceeding both the modem and router should be set to default. Despite what the help desk tech tells you, resetting the Westell does not put it into Bridged Mode.
bred.gif The BellSouth Installation CD and Connection Manager are not required to use this configuration.
bred.gif Since BellSouth assigns static WAN IPs via your username the configurations shown are applicable to both dynamic and single static IP customers. Select dynamic PPPoE regardless of your setup.
bred.gif You must connect the Westell directly to the computer's NIC to make the necessary changes before you connect the router, because you will be unable to access the modem interface after you connect the router. The reason is that the modem interface is 192.168.1.254 which is a local IP. By default, most routers do not have the capability to route a local IP out of their WAN port (where your Westell is connected). Additionally, they may be on completely different subnets. After you have made the changes to the Westell you can then connect the router and configure it for use with FastAccess. There are several alternatives around this problem. One method involves extra equipment (second NIC and a hub) and major configuration changes. The second method requires you to utilize the router as a simple switch and use the Westell's PPPoE and DHCP functions. Click here for more information.
bred.gif If you encounter any problems simply reset the Westell, connect it directly to your NIC, restart your computer, log into the Westell interface, and start over again.
bred.gif More information about the Westell is available here.

Section 2 - Westell Configuration
bred.gifStep 1
Verify that your NIC card is set to "Obtain IP Address Automatically". Completely power down the Westell and the computer(s). Power up the modem and press the reset button on the back of the modem. After the modem has fully initialized connect the Westell to the NIC and then power up the computer.

bred.gifStep 2
Open a browser session and enter 192.168.1.254 in the URL address field to access the Westell interface. If you are unable to access the interface make sure your NIC is set to "Obtain an IP address automatically". This may require you to reboot the computer (or release/renew) to obtain a proper IP.

bred.gifStep 3
Click on Broadband DSL Line from the top menu. Click on Configure Connection from the right menu. Select "Bridged Ethernet" from the Protocol pull down. Click on Save and restart the connection at the bottom. This will automatically restart the modem and the interface will return after the changes are saved. Note: functions like NAT, DHCP, IP Passthrough, and username and password will be disabled or irrelevant and can not be selected. After the modem has restarted, power down both the computer and the modem then physically disconnect the Westell.

Section 3 - D-Link Router Information
bred.gifStep 4
After the PC is powered down connect one of the router LAN ports to the computer NIC and power up the router and then the computer.

bred.gifStep 5
Use the following steps to configure your D-Link DI-604 Router. Important Note: You must use the username@bellsouth.net format for your username. If you do not add "@bellsouth.net" after your username you will be unable to connect to the internet.
image92920.gif
image92921.gif
image92922.gif

Section 4 - Connections and Power Up
bred.gifStep 6
Power everything down and physically connect the Westell, the router, and any computer(s).

bred.gifStep 7
Power up the network equipment in this order:
•Westell Modem (wait till the Ready light is a steady green)
•D-Link Router
•Computer(s)
Open a browser session and go surfing!

bred.gifAdditional Imformation
•You should check your tweak settings to optimize your new network. Reminder: If you are required to change your MTU, make sure that it is identical on all equipment (PCs and routers) in the network. For more information about changing MTU on a D-Link please click here.
•The 6100 has an "Internet" light that is green whenever there is an active PPPoE session initiated by the Westell. Since you are using the DLink to establish the PPPoE session the light will stay off. This is normal.

Reseting "Bridge mode" in RCA DCM 305R cabel modem


you can't set teh modem to bridge mode, however, you can set the router to bridge.
The linksys should have bridge mode configuration in the uer guide.

connected the 2 router together
configure the IP address of the liksys to be inthe same subnet as the moem, but out of the range of the DHCP of the modem. ie. DHCP address 192.168.0.2 through 192.169.0.100, the linksys should have the IP address as 192.168.0.200
disable the DHCP on the linksys
setup the wirless just the way you would if ti was the modem.
connect from the modem LAN port to the LAN port on thelinksys. leave the WAN port open.

Ip problem


It is common to have this as the default IP to connect to equipment.

I suggest you unplug your modem while you set up your router. You can also change the default IP for the router while in the settings. be sure to remember the new IP or you will have to do a factory reset to get it back to default
