Bridging pk5001z to Linksys e1500

I am trying to bridge my pk5001z to my linksys e1500 router to no avail. Everytime I turn off wireless on pk5001z and put transparent bridge setting on my internet goes. I tried finding the vpi and vci settings to change them to 8 and 35 but I cannot find them in any setting of the router. I do however have the automatic dhtp thing set as mentioned in some other posts also not working. The problem is the internet goes out completely. The reason I wanted to bridge in the first place is the modem has packet losses which disconnect me from games (League of Legends) making them unplayable and interrupts my streaming video (roku,xbox, playon). I have talked to Century link to no avail. All they tell me to do is reset the modem multiple times. The only way I can get my games to work somewhat properly is to turn on dmz which cuts off wifi to the rest of the family which is why I wanted to bridge in the first place. I am at my wits end and growing more frustrated by the day. If anyone could help that'd be greatly appreciated.

As far as the VPI and VCI that should not need to be changed to bridge that is just for the modem and dsl circuit connection.On the PK5001z you should turn wireless off and turn on transparent bridging then you will want to connect the PK5001Z to the WAN port of your Linksys router from here it should start to work automatically make sure you unplug power from both devices and start them up at the same-time just for good measure and If you are using PPPOE then you will need to enter that information into your Linksys router on the the Linksys router you should have a place to change your internet connection type by default it should be set to automatic configuration DHCP. BUT if you are using PPPOE you will need to change that setting to PPPOE and enter your login information when you set the PK5001Z to transparent bridging if you were using PPPOE then it would have had the information below where you changed the option to transparent bridging

Connect Ethernet Port 1 on the modem to the WAN port on the Linksys router. When in Bridge mode, the Internet light on the modem does not come on.

The light goes off yes but the internet also goes.

Are you in a PPPoE area, or a DHCP area? If PPPoE, you need to get your PPPoE username and password from CL and enter it on the WAN setup screen in the Linksys router. If DHCP, reset the Linksys to factory defaults and connect it to the router. It should pull a public IP. Also, do an IP release in the modem before switching it to bridge mode. Once the modem achieves DSL sync, boot up the router and you should have internet access. Check the status page in the router to make sure you are getting a connection to the CL network.
