How to Bridge a Comtrend Modem

downloadCT-5374.odt.zip 249,354 bytes
Hello community,

I am going to show you how to put a Comtrend modem into bridge mode.

1) Enter 192.168.254.254 into the Address Bar.

2)You will now be faced with the modem Login window,Enter
admin for both user name and password.

3)Now that your in the Modem's interface you now want to
select The advanced settings tab on the left pane.

4)In the advanced settings tab you now want to navigate
to the WAN Services tab.

5)Now you will be face with two Wan interfaces.If you look
to the right you will see that there is a option to remove.
Check both boxes and click remove.Now you are ready to
create your Wan service and enter the modem into bridge
mode.

6)Now click add under Wan services,you are now faced with a drop down box.Select one it doesn't matter which one you
select because you have to use both.So just select the first one.

7)click next,then you will be face with three options,click the one that says "bridging" then click next,then save and apply.

8)once again click add,and do the same for the second Wan interface.You will only have one option to select because you have already created your first Wan interface.

NOTE:
You must create the second interface or the bridge will not work and your internet will not work.You have to create one interface for ATM and the other for PTM.

9)After you have created your Bridged interfaces,select management and under management click reboot the modem from the interface.

Other Thoughts:

Now that you are in bridge mode,you are ready to hook up your router.Also In your router, do not forget to set up your PPPoE type connection by entering your User name and password that Windstream has giving you upon the installation of the service.
I have disabled the wireless feature in the comtrend Modem and i recommend that you also do this to keep the interference down between wireless channels.
