You could install Router Techs firmware on your modem www.routertech.org and it would give you the option to put the modem in full bridge mode. However I'm not sure the hardware on the modem fully supports it. You might have to use half bridge mode and let your router do the DHCP.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

What do you want to know? How to put it into bridge mode or how to get it out of bridge mode?
It depends on what driver you install for this device. The WAN driver gives you PPPoE/A and the LAN driver gives you bridged mode, Dlink appear to have a tool for removing drivers which I see as a very bad sign.
This is a pretty old device - the drivers I'm seeing go back to Windows 98 and Mac OS9...
You'll need to set your DSL modem up for "bridge mode". Right now it's acting as a router as well and that's keeping your new router from making the connection. In bridge mode, the modem acts only as a modem to connect to AT&T. Then your router will provide your login information and your computers will connect through it correctly.
You don't give your modem model so I can't give you any specific directions. A Google search for "bridge mode" and your modem's make and model should turn up the information you need. Or you can call AT&T's technical support number and ask them how to configure your modem. (Sometimes these big ISPs aren't too keen on helping you, though. They'd rather supply you with a wireless router/modem at an extra charge.)
You will need to connect a router to the Westell in order to use more than one computer with your dsl. That modem will need to be put in bridge mode in order to allow it to work with the router.
Call ATT/Bellsouth support and tell them you need to setup your modem for bridge mode and connect your Linksys router.
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
I had this same problem. I was going to go ahead and call ATT and ask them to put my modem into bridge mode, but I messed around a bit more....
I went ahead and turn on PPPoE...tried to run the set up again. Well it worked. Not the internet connection is working through the modem. For some reason, the setup changed PPPoE back to DHCP Client, but it's working now. Give this a shot before calling ATT if you like. Good luck.
upgraded the latest firmware in the router, reset your router and reconfigure it, check if your dsl modem is configured in a bridge mode if not configure your modem in bridge mode and reconfig your links router accordingly, that will fix your problem
put the modem in bridge mode and then connect a DSL/cable router to it...you'll have to configure the PPOE if its DSL...
Cable is a little easier because there usually is a MAC authientication not username and password...plug dsl/cable router into cable modem...turn both off for about aminute then turn modem on first then router...
Be careful most routers with wireless have it enable with no security by default...turn it off or set securty (wirelss that is)
