How do you set a DSL modem to bridge mode? Ive got a Motorola style MSTATEA modem.

Most likely you would go into the Modem's settings menus, then find and change the operating mode setting to "Bridge". Without a link to your modem's manual, I can't tell you exactly where in the menus that setting would be, or exactly what it would be called. For example, on a Linksys WRT54G router, the mode setting is in the Advanced Routing page, where you would change the Operating Mode setting from Gateway (router mode) to Router (bridge mode). As you can see, the Linksys terminology is confusing. <g> Scott.

I went poking around in the modem's settings but could not find any bridge options. It's a Motorola model 2210-02-1002. It's an ATT DSL standard modem. All I could find on the net were headaches regarding this modem. ATT has not even issued a firmware update since it was introduced. I want to go wireless with my DSL but this modem is getting in the way.

Randy,

Just plug your router into the modem and go. You can have a router behind a router no problem at all, your router will get all the information it needs from the dsl modem/router.

As a matter of fact, I've set up a network with 3 routers. The first router is the main router which I plug 2 other routers into. I then have 2 seperate networks that cannot see each other. I leave the one with the wireless turned on wide open for guests that come over. The other network is mine and is secure.

Mike

I tried that but got no internet connection. From the blogs I've read everybody else is having the same problems with the ATT modem. Do you know of any DSL modem/router combos?

I'm guessing you checked the router after setting it up to see if it is acquiring an ip address from the modem.

If you cannot get it to work, you could always set the router to bridge mode and let the wireless clients pick up ip addresses from the modem, that should work.

That manual only has the basics, I think he is looking for this: http://www.netopia.com/support/hardware ... 7-Clsc.pdf

Information on how to configure bridge mode is on page 117. Scott.

Thanks FatGuy/Scott,

It will be a while before I can put this info to the test. I'll be attempting to upgrade to "N" wireless in October. I'm looking at Linksys because Cisco bought them and Cisco has a pretty good presence at most Internet hubs all over the world. I'm hoping some of their quality trickles down to their consumer devices.

Scott, do you have any opinion on Linksys or some other brand?

I've used and recommended Linksys products in the past, however I haven't tested many 802.11n routers or access points, so I can't give any specific recommendations in that area. Note that 802.11n was just (finally!), however all of the current products I see are still at the "Draft 2.0" level. Ideally I'd want a wireless router that supported the final 802.11n spec., with dual-band operation in a 3x3:3 (transmit antennas x receive antennas : spatial streams) configuration supporting up to 450Mbps, and with external antennas for maximum range. Unfortunately I don't know of a router like that, however for a laptop internal adapter with those capabilities I'd recommend the .

Let me know what you end up using and how well you like it. Scott.

Update:

The Motorola modem issue is now moot. It keeps losing the internet connection and also the DSL light keeps going out. Unplugging it for 5 min. and reattachng the power plug offers temporary reconnection but I feel the modem is on it's way to the modem mortuary.

I replaced the modem with modem/router (DLink DGND3300). This was by far the easiest to set up networking device I have ever encountered. I highly recommend it. I'm runnng it in mode 2 (single band g/n mode only). I could switch to dual band later but I got a couple of USB g adapters at Lowe's for $8 each on closeout so this was the way to go for me. I had 4 out of 5 computers online in 30 minutes.
