I would set it up in 'router' mode. Bridge mode is for a specific application for an intranet (not internet).
Bridge Mode Router Mode Does not block any broadcast or multicast Blocks and provide protection against broadcast storms Transparent bridge and can pass Non-IP protocols Only IP protocol is supported PPPOE protocol Pass-through No PPPOE protocol pass-through Able to transport VLAN tagging Doesn't supports VLAN No network segmentation. One broadcast domain Network segmentation (Clients can be on different IP subnet) Can only relay the DHCP client's request to the external DHCP server Can Act as DHCP server & relay which Prevents IP conflict & DHCP Injection Bridges maintains bridging table (Mac) & STP can be used to avoid loops No STP feature; maintains routing table External bandwidth Controller can be used to control the speed of the clients by Mac or IP address External bandwidth Controller can be used to control the speed of the clients by IP only In client device, it uses MAC address to associate which requires WDS compatible AP Use SSID to associate, work with any 802.11a/b/g AP

Without a model number, it's difficult to tell you exactly how to resolve this issue. What you need to do is make sure that your modem is set to bridge mode. You'll need to plug directly into the modem, access the web interface that it uses (usually 192.168.0.1 or something similar) and set it to function as a bridge instead of a router. You should disable DHCP as well, but before you do that make sure you know how to do a full reset of the modem so that it will return to factory settings because disabling DHCP makes it tricky to access the web interface which means if you need to access it again later, you'll need to do a full reset.

Wireless is nonexistant


You need to bridge mode your modem. And when set it to bridge mode already. Connect the dlink router. Access the gui of the router. Enter there your username and password. Powercycle modem, router and computer. Check connections. I f this didnt work, set again your modem to default, connect your router. Configure your router with username and password. Powercycle again. Check if it is working.

Bridge router


1. Use both the Modem and the router as NAT routers. Do this by making your router a DMZ node on your modem, that way ALL traffic will pass to the router, then set up port forwarding etc on the router.

2. Run the router/modem in bridge mode (recommended). You need to set the modem to run in bridge mode, check the user manual for refrences to bridging. Then set the router to connect to PPPoE using a username and password.

Hello there,

Your internet connection should be setup properly in order for the router to give connectivity to both your computer.

You must contact your ISP and ask them for the IP's and put it in the router.

How do i / can I connect dsl (att / motorolla modem) to USroboti


I have been working on the same problem. I found information on the router settings on the USR website http://www.usr.com/support/8054/8054-ug/three.html but after the wizzard was run and PPoE setting was set to automatic (IP is Dynamic), it still doesn't work. I believe the modem needs to be set to bridge mode, instructions for this are on AT&T's website.

How to put dsl-320T in full bridge mode?


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.

Can't get Trendnet TEW-432 router to connect to internet with motorola modem


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.

D-link DGl-4100


I'm currently running the same setup(but no wireless). Things to ensure:

1. The DSL modem (not your router) must be set to bridged mode, not PPPoE. Your modem has a web interface that can be accessed via a direct ethernet connection between the pc and modem. After making this change, reconnect your modem to your router.

2. The router has to be configured to use PPPoE and the AT&T login username has to be the full email address. (Mine ends in bellsouth.net) Make sure that your password is entered correctly by checking the status page for an established connection.

Finally, power cycle your router and try to surf!
