Case of a Bridged modem


In this case the router create himself the PPPoE connection to the ISP server. But to work, the connection between the modem and the router must have an IP address. So usually the modem give an address to the client. but this address will never be used except in some case to access to the configuration interface of the modem.

My modem is a Speedtouch 510, is IP address is and it gives the address to the device connected to him. The easiest way to know these address is to connect the modem directly to your computer and take a look to your network card configuration. The default gateway is the Modem address and the Card address is the one provided by the modem.

So it's look like this.

   |<---------- PPPOE link ---------->|    
   |                                  |    |====== 
  ISP ======= bridged ============== WRT ========= PCs
               modem |              |   |  |======
                     |              |   |
                     |<- 10.0.0.x ->|   |<-- 192.168.1.x -->>

By default if you type the IP address of the modem you have an "Impossible to contact the server" error.

The way to follow

Eventually replace the 10.0.0.x by your addresses

  • Go to Administration -> Diagnostics and click on run
  • Enter
ip addr add dev vlan1 brd +

and click on Save Startup

  • Enter
/usr/sbin/iptables -I POSTROUTING -t nat -o vlan1 -d -j MASQUERADE

and click on Save Firewall
