The Speed Stream modem need to be configured properly into Bridged Ethernet Mode. Configuring your modem in this way is also useful when connecting computers or other devices.
The PPP Location page allows the you to change the operating mode of your AT&T provided modem by identifying where the PPP client is located. Please follow the steps below to access the screen, review the valid settings.
1. Access the PPP Location screen on the modem by accessing the GUI http://192.168.0.1) then clicking on the Advanced button and selecting the PPP Location button.
2. Below are the options provided to you on that page:
When PPPoE on the modem or Bridge mode are selected, a warning screen will pop up.
3. Select Bridged Mode option.
4. Click on Save Changes.
5. The Modem will restart to save the settings.
After configuring bridge connection on your Speed Stream 4100 modem, you need to configure the settings in your third party router (Apple Aiport Express wireless router) for basic PPPoE configuration. Once you connect the router behind the modem, you will need to configure the router to connect using the PPPoE connection settings - including the AT&T account User ID and password, or the correct IP information.
Hope this help.
In order to configure PPPoE connection on your Apple Aiport Express wireless router, it is recommended that you contact AT&T ConnecTech/Support+ at 1-877-831-2880, they are open 24/7.

G4 Desktop Leopard. ATT DSL cable Speedstream 4100 works fine. As long as I don't run through the Airport Base station. But I want to connect my laptop wirelessly.
WHen I try to run through early model Airport Extreme Router, (mushroom shaped) Nothing works anymore.
I tried with configuring Modem to Bridged mode.
Have Tutorial from Penny, but no help.
I can't figure out call in or chat numbers.
It looks like the direct connect was a pay for service.
I had no issues with the Motorola Modem 2210, except they don't last long, and fail.
I had the Siemens ATT sent me, but it never worked with my Airport Extreme.
