DLink DSL-302G Half or Full Bridge mode support???

Just wondering if this modem will allow me to plug an ethernet cable between it and a server, and have it pass on the internet IP to that server, so that the modem isn't acting as the router.

Other modems I have found call this Half/Full Bridge mode, Half being where the modem does the PPPoA/PPPoE login and Full where the server does it.

I didn't find anything on their website, plus after emailing them, they replied that they give no support for their modems...

Currently the modem gets the internet IP, and assigns LAN ip's to the client machines thru its internal dhcp server.

Help would be fantastic!

Thanks,

Paul.

Acording to this site it can be used either way.

I already know their claims, fulfilling them is a different story. I'm after a method.

Humm, your question was "if this modem will allow me to plug an ethernet cable between it and a server, and have it pass on the internet IP to that server, so that the modem isn't acting as the router"
And that answer is "yes" according to their advertising for the modem.

Now personally I don't use Dlink because of the poor quality and poor support as well, so I cannot give you a step by step instructions on how to set it up.

The question was 'will', not 'does it claim to' ;-)

Perhaps someone else can answer the question, thanks for your attempt.

Did you try going into the "setup" mode for the modem? Like I stated I don't use Dlink by choice but the ones (other brands) I have been around had an option you could select in the "setup"

After a lot of looking I saw 2 slightly hopefuls.

1) Forward DHCP

2) Disable NAT

Neither seemed to work. Forwarding DHCP seemed only to want to forward to a lan server for some reason.

Disabling NAT simply stopped the internet from working fullstop lol.

From what I can see its a pretty bad modem/company. There may be some complicated sequence to partake in to cease it functioning as a router and just being a modem?
