I have been trying to use my DM602 in modem mode as I have a Linksys BEFSX41 firewall router that I would like to use. I can acces the web browser settings page & change the device to modem. It appears to connect as in settings it lists it as connected and displays traffic in and out but I can not access the net or use any of my MSN messnger & alike programmes as they won't connect. I suspect that I haven't quite got my settings right somehwere?

I have also had it set in router mode and had it working fine but I have had some issues with MSN messnger when trying to use the audio feature & also sending email but agin I suspect its because the DM602 is in router mode & I should be using it as a modem??

Any help would be gratefully appreciated, its driving me up the wall!!!

I would guess that you need to configure your IP somewhere when you switch modes.  

Does your DSL ISP supply static or dynamic IP addresses?

If it's static, you will need to configure it in your computer when the modem is in modem-mode.

I believe that you are not getting the correct IP configuration from the DHCP function on the router...   Open up your Command Shell and run the command:

ipconfig /all > ip.txt

This will place your IP config on your desktop in a text file..  Copy and paste it in the comment section here so we can have a look at it...

OH.. just in case you are new to this...  The Command Shell in W2K and XP is basically the DOS prompt..   Start > Run > cmd  (ok)

Okay, the txt file is being created in the "Chris" folder...:  C:\Documents and Settings\Chris

Taking a look at your IP settings, they look correct..  Are you still having a problem..??  Notice you closed out the question..

If not, thanks, and hope it helped..

Ok..  get into your router's web interface and make sure that it is getting a good IP address from your Netgear modem...  Since you can connect to your router, then your IP stack is good in your computer..  It must have something to do with the connection between the router and the modem..
