I have a Sonicwall device that is connected in bridge mode to a Telstra Max modem (netgear).

During normal operation the modem is in bridge mode and the SonicWall WAN port gets the public ip address directly not a local/private address.

My local network address are in the range of 10.0.0.x. If I want to access the modem admin pages I need to change the settings on the SonicWall WAN port to Static & set an ip in the range 192.168.0.x so that I can access the modem on

Is there away of accessing the modem while the bridge connection is active. I thought that it would be possible to create some sort of static route but don't know a lot about it and have had no luck.

Thanks for the assisstance.
