  • How do I change into bridged mode on the 4200?
This modem does not have an explicit option to switch to bridge mode. Instead, it automatically detects what method you're trying to use.

1. With the modem on, simply press and hold the reset button for four seconds (until the Pwr LED starts to blink) to clear the user name and password from the modem.

2. If you are not using a router, then create a new connection as described here for Windows XP or use RASPPPoE with Windows 9x/ME/2000.

3. If you are using a router, connect the router between your computer and the modem and configure the router with your username and password.

Alternatively, try going to to set the modem into bridged mode (note: may not work with all revisions)

Feedback received on this FAQ entry:
  • I have the Bell SpeedStream 4200 modem/router with a Dlink router between the 4200 and three different computers. Before I set it to bridge mode by going to the link provided above, will this have any impact on the computer's ability to browse the internet or use email? Thanks.
