Can't setup 2210 admin page to connect through a switch?
Problem description: My office has a server with a switch. Our DSL connects from the line into the modem, and then that connects into the switch (an HP Procurve 2124), which connects to the server. I don't know much about how it works, but when it is setup directly to my modem, the admin page is the generic 192.168.254.1 When it is setup correctly the admin page is 10.0.0.1 So when it is setup correctly and I run ipconfig, I get the following from my workstation:
IP Address: 10.0.0.21
Default gateway: 10.01.0.1
The old modem kept crapping out, so I switched it and they sent me a brand new Motorola 2210-02 DSL modem. I can connect to the Internet just fine when I connect directly to my computer. However when I try to go through the switch (by plugging the modem directly into the switch, and then plugging my computer into the ethernet wall jack), it doesn't work. I do not have a static IP address. Workstations are set to obtain DNS and IP automatically.
Attempted fixes: I have not made any changes to the server, my hardware, my workstation, or anything else. The problem MUST be with the configuration of the admin page. The way I was able to setup the previous modem to work, was to disable DHCP (I don't even know what that is), and to set "device ip address" as 10.0.0.1 Those are the only changes I made to the old modem's admin page. IP Passthrough (whatever that is), was disabled on my old modem. It was set to connect in PPPoe mode. The new modem does not have too many settings on the advanced admin page. There is nothing listed for disabling DHCP so I couldn't try that. The only thing that maybe seemed like it would affect it is an option to change the PPP location to "PPP is on the computer, gateway or router (bridged mode). I do not think my previous modem was in bridged mode, but even changing it to bridged mode on the new modem didn't help. Currently the PPP location is set to "PPP is on the modem." There are really only two options I can change on this modem. One of them is that, and the other is:
Let LAN device share Internet address? No, use private IP address (currently selected) or Yes, use public IP address
The modem setup page does show this, so it looks like DHCP is enabled:
Modem IP Address 192.168.1.254
Modem Netmask 255.255.255.0
DHCP Address 192.168.1.64
Recent changes: None. Just the admin page.
Operating system: Windows XP on workstations and 2003 for server.
System specs: Motorola 2210-02 modem
Thanks for any help!
If your using the 2210-02-1022 modem
The modems dhcp server can only allocate one ip address 192.168.1.64 or it can share the public ip address with one device
If you want to use more than one computer/device with this modem each device must have it's tcp/ip info manually assigned

If (as suggested by wayjac ) you have the new SBC inspired brain dead 2210-02-1022 modem (and it sounds as if you do), and if you still wish to use it as the primary gateway router, I can provide you with the old 7.7.3r7 firmware that was designed for the 2210-02-1006 modem which is a full SPI firewall router without the serious limitations of the 2210-02-1022.
However, you either will have to register and IM me for the download link or email me (you can use the email address that displays in my DSLR profile). I am not going to publicly post a copy of the firmware (or a link to it) because that could provoke AT&T into DMCA mode (and a direct upload or a direct link is also against the rules for this forum). If you are worried about using the firmware, check the »AT&T Southeast forum and you will see that others have used it successfully on the 2210-02-1022 modem.
