Re: Configure Netgear as Bridge mode

I have the same issue, i.e. the wifi on the 7550 sucks and I plan to add a Netgear R7000 to correct the deficiencies of the 7550. I can get to the modem setup program, just need to know what settings to change. Unfortunately, no manual for the 7550 seems to be available.

Would you have instructions of how to place the 7550 Dsl modem in Bridge mode.  I have disable NAT; however ICMP (pings) are not responding.  Would you please help.

If you would like to enable bridge mode on your Netgear 7550 and use a separate router instead with it, you must first go to by typing that into your URL bar in your browser. Once there, head over to the "Advanced" tab and click on the sub-tab of "PPP Location." Choose "PPP is on the computer, gateway, or  router" option and hit save. If it asks for an access code, it should be listed physically on the side of your gateway.


Please note that once you hit save, you will need to insert the PPPoE(login information) into the router you're trying to set up using it's user interface page. Consult your router's manual to find where you can change your WAN connection type to PPPoE so you can use your login that's currently being used on your Netgear 7550 so that you can connect to AT&T's network.

Re: Configure Netgear as Bridge mode

What if I have static settings and wanted to bridged the Netgear7550 and set my router or computer hard coded with the static IP information how would I do this. I selected that PPP option and the light on my modem is off and no traffic is passing.
