First check if your computer can get on the modem with an Ethernet ( This is to find out if your router will work with your modem) If you cannot get on give your ISP a call to have them configure the modem for Ethernet connection. If you do get on then connect the router to the modem and your computer to the router. You can run the CD for the router or do the connection manually.

I Think you ISP must be DSL.
Your internet is working with the old router when it is in bridge mode.
Check the IP address of your computer when it is connected directly to the modem and NOT in the bridge mode. Suppose the IP address is 192.168.X.Y. After that connect your computer to the ethernet port of the router. DO NOT connect the modem to the router. check the IP address of the computer again. Suppose the IP address of the computer is 192.168.A.B. Now make sure that both the IP addresses are not in the same range that means X is NOT equal to A. If they are same, then open the set up interface of your router and change the Local IP address of the router. that will help.

My DIR-655 won't work!


It would be helpful if you could be a bit more specific regarding the way you hooked up the dir 655 to your network and your specifc DSL modem. If the modem you are using is the Actiontec M1000 DSL modem you will not be able to obtain internet access because the DIR 655 is trying to route an already routed IP, the M1000 has a built in router / DHCP that by default is enabled. You can use option 1, access the configuration settings of your M1000 and change the WAN configuration to act as a transparent bridge. After doing so and rebooting the modem you will have to enter your DSL login information like a PPPoE username and password for example into your DIR 655 network settings. With this configuration the modem simply acts as a bridge to relay data directly to the DIR 655 and the 655 itself provides login credentials to obtain internet from your DSL provider as well as hand out IP addresses to the local network. Option 2 is to continue to use the M1000 as a router by default and disable DHCP on your DIR 655 so that it essentially acts as nothing more than a switch or wireless access point while the M1000 hands out local IP addresses. I personally would recommend using the DIR 655 to route IP's as it's got far more configuration utilities than the M1000 does as a router, and really what's the point of getting the 655 if you're only going to use it as a switch or access point when there are other simpler and cheaper devices that could do that for you.

DSL line disconnects on WRT54GS only


Try to change the LAN IP address of your router to 192.168.2.1 by accessing the router's Setup page. You also need to set your Westell modem to "full-bridge mode". You need to ask assistance from your ISP to bridge the modem. After that, set-up the Linksys router to PPPoE then power cycle it.

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.

Setup Wireless Router to Westell 6100 modem


Your Wireless router should have come with a CD. Insert the CD into your computer and follow it step by step. If it did not come with it here is a basic wiring setup.
From wall jack to Westell modem, From modem to uplink port on Max G router.
Reboot Westell modem. T
Everything should auto-configure unless you need a username and password for your DLS. If so you will need to program this into your router.

Can not setup modem:Westell 6100 to router:Linksys WRT54G


i think the best way is to describe to you the physical setup first. so you have a computer, a modem, and a router. the setup should be like this: from the walljack, the phonecable is connected to the 6100, make sure there are no micro filters connected between the walljack and the phone line because it will not allow you to connect to the dsl. from the modem, the data/internet cable at the back of it, using an ethernet cable, should be connected to the router. and at the back of the router E1 to E4, another ethernet cable is connected there and the other end of the cable is to be connected to your computer. you are right in bridging the modem, the reason for that is because both the westell 6100 and router have GUI's or Graphical User Interfaces, in short, they each have their own virtual brain. you will not have a connection if both of them have this GUI thing, so you need to bridge your westell 6100, so that the only GUI active is the routers. to bridge the modem you may need assistance from tech support of your ISP provider. assuming that's done, light status in your 6100 should have a solid DSL light. for the router, it should have lights in WAN, WLAN if you want to connect wirelessly and E1 to E4, whichever ethernet port you're using for a wired connection. you have to access the GUI of the router to make sure you have a routable WAN IP Address. As for the IP address in your computer, it should be a 192.168.x.xxx type of ip address. this is the LAN IP Address. Basically you need to have routable WAN and LAN IP Addresses to be able to connect online. you will need to configure the GUI of your router to be able to do this. for that you may need assistance from tech support of the router or if you can follow the instructions in the manual, by all means do so. the most important thing in this setup is bridging the modem.
