Got this device. I am not sure if I can bridge to another device such as router or VPN appliance. Is this possible? Can I open ports if I am stuck with using this alone?

As far as you know, the 2210 is pretty much the same as the 3360 in regards to functionality?

I have software manuals for Netopia 3300 series with v7.5, v8.5 and v8.7 firmware... do you know what firmware the unit has?

Here's the Bridge/Router instruction page for v8.7... is that what you're seeing in your motorola?

You eitherbridge the modem or you bridge the router.  Not both.

Actually, a router is a bridge with network address translation (NAT).

I will bridge the modem to a VPN device. I would then need a set of static IP addresses for a DSL account. One for the modem and for the VPN device , correct?

Nope.  You only need one.  The valid static ip address will be bridged to the VPN device.

The equipment is at another location so I havent got to get chance to begin connections. You are saying the dsl modem in bridge mode is nothing more than a modem without any associated IP assigned to it? Interesting....

That's correct. Just like a layer 2 LAN switch doesn't need an IP assigned to it or any of its ports in order to pass traffic back and forth.
