This modem can function as a normal bridge modem. This is useful if you want to bypass the router features because they interfere with what you're trying to do online (servers, gaming, VPN, bittorrent, etc) or if you already have a router that you want to use. Without using bridge mode, the 6520 will not happily co-exist with another router.

In your network card properties, set a static IP of 10.0.0.1, netmask 255.255.255.0, with the gateway & dns blank. That will make sure that your computer will not get a DHCP IP from the 6520.

Then just simply set up a PPPoE connection on your computer, be it via Windows XP's PPPoE connectoid, RASPPPoE, Access Manager, etc., or connect your own router and configure it according to the instructions supplied by the router manufacturer.

Note: You do not need to reconfigure the 6520 in order for it to function in bridge mode.
