NVG510 Bridge Mode???
Just switched from DSL (Motorola 2210) to UVerse (Motorola NVG510). I set the 2210 into bridge mode and ran my home network from an Apple Airport Extreme Base Station (AEBS). I have some complex configurations on my network and figured I'd be able to do the same thing with the NVG510. However, it seems the NVG510 uses different terminology than I am used to.
Under Firewall/IP Passthrough, I set:
Allocation Mode to 'Passthrough'
Passthrough Mode to 'DHCPS-Fixed'
Passthrough Fixed MAC Address to the AEBS' MAC address
And, I left the Lease at the default 10 minutes.
On the AEBS, under Internet/Internet Connection, I switched from 'PPPoE' to 'Ethernet'. I left the Ethernet WAN Port value at 'Automatic (Default)'. And Connection Sharing is set to 'Share a public IP address'.
This apparently is not enough, though. The AEBS reports that the "Wi-Fi base station does not have a valid IP address", and that there is a "Conflicting DHCP Range".
How do I turn off the DHCP on the NVG510? And, what are the correct settings to put the NVG510 into bridged mode?
