I currently test dd-wrt on Asus, Buffalo, Linksys, and Netgear. Too many to list.

Looking for more test units (newer models) for the project...got a brick?...PM me to make a hardware donation. (USA) A donation is not a debricking service....it is a way to "Give back" to the dd-wrt project.

I do NOT provide personal assistance through chat or phone....so please don't ask.

Your question is a little vague. Could You be more specific?

When it comes to DSL modems, I don't think anything.

Routed Bridge means the modem provides LAN ips and shares internet connection directly from it.

Bridge mode means the modem will give a public ip to a computer/router connected to it.

Basically is this..

I use a routed bridge to connect to my neighbors network

His network: 192.168.0.1
My network: 192.168.1.1

he can't see into my network.

I use a client bridge to connect my house to my motorhome in the back yard

Both house and motorhome are on 192.168.1.1

I can print, save files to NAS and surf from the motorhome or house.

client bridge to enable hard wired PCs to share a network at a remote structure

routed bridge to share an internet connection and maintain pricacy for your network

matlark, i saw you linked the router to westell by lan to wan. it's how i used my modem + router for a long while and it worked with no problems.

However, I googled this while checking if someone else succeeded in bridging that westell unit.

Trrusst, I tried following those instructions (for bridging the westell 7500) several times and every time I was unable to get it to work. Could never get internet. Not sure if the ISP is doing something on their end to prevent this type of setup.
