A correction for the FAQs in regards to the 5100b. This could be a new item (e.g., Q: When does the 5100b asked for a modem access code?) as well as corrections for the steps in the other exiting questions.
The modem access code is not asked for more than once in a session. It is not asked for on the first acecss to the modem. It is asked for when you try to access a page whose primary end result would change the state of the modem or when you click on a button that would change the state of the modem on a page that is primarily an informational page. And then it is only asked once per session.
In addition you might clarify why to use Bridged mode vs. Bridge mode with IP Address pass Issuance. The latter is preferred so that you can easily return to the GUI without resetting the modem back to factory defaults or going through manual pc based subnet configurations. However Bridged modem with IP address issuance may cause a conflict for users with plain IP over 2684 (aka DHCP) service and with may not always work with some Ethernet to Ethernet routers (the routers configuration can ususally be changed but what happens by default varies from router to router manufacturer).
