Set your Frontier SE567 to Bridge Mode

After trying a BUNCH of different scenarios, this one (copied from Smith6612) finally WORKED. Now I use the SE567 as a modem only, bridged to a Netgear WPN824v2 RangeMax 108mbps Wireless Router. Sweet!

1. Attach your PC to a LAN port on the SE567 and log in as admin.
2. Go to 'ISP Connection'
3. Then 'Advanced Settings' and 'Configure the ATM Virtual Circuit'
4. Select 'Add a New VC'
5. Set the VPI to 8 and the VCI to 35. Click Next
6. Select 'RFC-2684 Bridged'. Click Next.
7. Enter some name for the connection. Click Next/Finish.
8. Click 'DISABLE' on the original PPPoE VC.
9. Then delete all of the VCs except the new one.
10. Click 'ENABLE' on the new connection.
11. REBOOT the SE567.

you can bridge it if you want to but dont call for help from frontier. I was told that you are not supposed to do that and will be charged accordingly for a service call.

My current (default) setup is 0/35, not 8/35, OP what was your original setting from Frontier? I'm wondering if I create the new VC with 0/35 or 8/35, since I don't even know what I'm changing with that setting.

Ok, but if you do run into that situation isn't it simple to set the setting back to the original? You aren't deleting the original just disabling it. Am I missing something?

The vast majority of Frontier locations are 0/35. As you are currently working with 0/35, you would use those values.

0/35 refer to ATM parameters used on the WAN. They represent the virtual path and virtual channel identifier (VPI/VCI). They must match the provisioned parameters at the CO.
