Standalone DSL modem
Does anyone know of a good DSL modem that is simply a DSL modem? (no router, DHCP, NAT, etc.. built in)
I use a separate router plugged into the GT701 DSL modem. DynDNS built into the router can not see the actual external IP and instead is given the NAT 192.168.x.x. address that the GT701 issues
I would also be open to any way of getting the modem to disable the routing and NAT.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
It does not sound like your modem is actually running in the bridge mode. When it is in that mode it will not give you an address in the 192 range but rather pass along the "real" one from Qwest.
You need to place your GT701 into bridge mode.
That makes it become what is known as a "dumb" modem. Everything that comes into it is passed along to your router and you have to configure your router to do the PPPoE or PPPoA, which ever your local area is using, and have it login using your accounts username and password.
Here is a link showing you how to go into the bridge mode.

You might want to read the other items in the message area about your DSL modem, like how to contact it should you need to once it's in bridging mode.
