E4200 V1 Linky + Sagem 1704 ADSL Bridge + Tomato Shibby = No Internet

    I've made a couple of attempts to get this working. Using Shibby, not sure which version but likely whatever was 'new' in November of last year.

    I cannot connect to the internet.

    Sagem: Disabled DHCP then selected Quick Bridge. My understanding is the default IP address becomes

    E4200: set up for PPPoE with an IP address of Copied from the Sagem to the E4200 my ADSL provider username and password correctly.

    I'm able to access the E4200 set up pages, and my home network, but no internet.

    Does this possibly have something to do with the requirement to use different subnets for the modem and router? I'm not sure what to change to do that..

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    When you use PPPoE, typically your router (E4200) gets a public IP address from the ISP, and your ADSL modem becomes a transparent device; its DHCP server and IP address are no longer of any importance.

    You shouldn't have to worry about IP conflics or setting up IP addresses manually. What does the WAN section of your status page say?

    hopefully I captured what you're asking about before I reverted everything back to full Sagem/no E4200. see if the 2 attached screenshots make any sense.

    right so everything is default looking, that's fine. What about wan section of the Status (overview) page?

    looks like this. another thing to note is that I can't seem to access the sagem(at after adding the E4200 into the mix.

    Dynamic DNS is not used in this instance.

    Let me offer a suggestion on configuration. It is a little involved but will allow for us to look at the modem remotely.

    The modem default web page it at (if google is correct). To view it we need to have you on a different subnet.

    Soooooo... here we go:

    In the E4200 Router:

    In Basic - > network: In the LAN section; set your Route Modem IP to
    Set your LAN address to

    reboot the router. You may have to reboot your computer to reset the LAN network connection.

    In your browser, go to and you should be able to bring the DSL modem up while connected to the E4200 on the network.

    If you can then we can work on the next step.

    <sorry about all the edits to get this right>

    solved! I now have internet access!

    it helps if you use the correct isp username!

    a couple of peculiarities remain unanswered though :
    1) i think the sagem will default to but i still cannot access it once joined to the E4200. I was able to set it up using with a direct connection, even after the conversion to bridge. but after connecting the E4200 it has disappeard - even with a direction connection to eth1. very odd.
    2) it seems as thought the E4200 setting In Basic - > network -> LAN -> Route Modem IP does not need to be set (i.e. default is ok).

    If you set it up as on my previous post, you will be able to access the DSL modem. In your case set the route modem IP to

    I have DSL and this is how I am configured so that I can access the modem control page.

    *route modem ip* allows me to get to the modem setup!

    many thanks!
