Here's a page from a linksys adsl router


























If you could post a picture of this page from your linksys or the info from this page
The vc settings and ip settings are needed to identify how the internet connection is made

Can you access the configuration pages of the 3com if you can a picture of it's configuration summary page would help

The problem there is once we set the mode to LLC bridged the modem reboots and we can never access the settings (on either router) unless we completely reset the modem back to default settings again.

There should be some specific setting that alters the way the 3com deals with the ip address (public vs private lan) and unless you know what that setting is I am not sure what the information you are requesting will provide. I gave you the VC settings and IP settings in the previous posts.

I don't want you to make any configuration changes

You may be right......I think the 3com is in "bridge mode" which means the computer is making the internet connection

I don't know enough about the current configuration to suggest changes

The vc settings are settings that are common for any adsl modem

It looks like the linksys internet connection type is automatic/dhcp the linksys status page should show that

I can only guess about the 3com internet connection type
You should be able to call your isp and get them to help you
