[connectivity] No connection when Bridging Verizon Westell 7500

Hello,

I have been trying to bridge my Westell VersaLink 7500 to my Linksys WRT-54g V8.0 flashed with dd-wrt.

1. I started by hard resetting both the router and modem
2. Disabled the walled garden.
3. Went into My Network > Network Connections > Broadband Connections > VC's edit > Changed Protocol from PPPoE to Bridge
4. Changed Bridge mode to Bridge
-Hit Apply
5. Went back to My Network > Network Connections > LAN > Unchecked Private LAN DHCP Server Enable box
-Hit Apply
6. Went back to My Network > Wireless Access Point > Turned off Wireless.
-Hit Apply

Turned off modem.
Unplugged ethernet from westell and plugged into LAN port on Linksys

1.Went to 192.168.1.1
2.Reset UN and PW
3. Went to Setup
3. Changed Router IP from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.254.1
4.Clicked Connection Type > Changed
Auto Config to PPPoE (found out by Westell that i am in a PPPoE area)
5. Used UN and PW credentials from Westell router as UN and PW for PPPoE Wan Connection
6. Hit apply changes
7. Waited for router to reboot.
8. Went to Wireless > Changed SSID and Password to my liking.
9. Hit apply.
10. Went to status > WAN > hit connect > CONNECTED
Unplugged Linksys WRT-54g

1.Plugged one Ethernet cable into the Westell 4/Data port > to the Internet WAN port on Linksys
2. Plugged another Ethernet from LAN port 3 to PC
3. Turned on Router waited until Power light, Ethernet 4 light and DSL light came on.
4. Plugged in Router and waited until it was up and running.
5.Turned on PC
6. No internet.
7.Released and Renewed ip in cmd (ran as admin) still nothing.
8. Default Gateway is 192.168.254.1 as is DHCP Server and DNS Server.

Can someone tell me what is wrong and/or why this is not working and how to fix it.

Unplugged Linksys WRT-54g

Before you did that, how was the Linksys WRT-54g connected to the Westell?

And please be specific, For example:

WAN port of Linksys WRT-54g connected to LAN port number two of the Westell.

Linksys was connected on port 3 to the ethernet port on my PC for setup after doing the hard reset.

After I unplugged it and turned it back on it was plugged into port 4/Data on Westell and WAN port on Linksys.

In that case: I wonder if there is something wrong with one or more of the ethernet ports of the Westell.

Port four seems to be broken of the Westell.

Port three of the Westell is ok.

This info is based upon what you are saying (unless that is, we are not on the same page / don't understand each other).

I have tried all the ports on the westell and have been able to successfully access the router via 192.168.1.1.

Could it be a possibility that 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.254.1 are not in the same subnet mask. I am going to try changing it to 10.0.0.1 subnet of 255.0.0.0 for westell and 10.0.0.2 subnet of 255.0.0.1 for the linksys to see if that will work and even though im in a PPPoE switching on DHCP auto config instead of PPPoE on the Linksys

While 192.168.1.1 is a different subnet from 192.168.254.1 that will not prevent a pppoe/dhcp session from being started. You need to detrime if pppoe is used or if the account uses dhcp

When dhcp is used you must release the public ip address before changing the device that does the dhcp, If the account uses pppoe the pppoe session must be ended before changing the device that does the pppoe
