    I can't for the life of me figure this out. My modem is and is in bridge mode. My router is I want to access the web interface of my modem to check line stats. I can do this by unplugging my WAN connection and manually setting my IP address to and my gateway to the modem's IP I've tried looking on the forums for the appropriate firewall settings, but without much luck. No one bothers to explain the numbers, especially the subnetting, so I'm quite lost. I've done this successfully for a modem with IP, but not

    Any help?

    Since your modem is in bridge mode, how about setting your router IP to be, and connect via one of the LAN ports. U can also change the WAN port to a LAN port to utilise all 5 ports.

    Can't compete with the pretty pictures here which use your modem address as example

    Note the ifconfig command adds an additional IP address to the router wan port - in the same range as the modem. This should go in your init script, an alternate form of the command uses "ip addr add" this does the same.

    The iptables command nats the connection so you can use a different IP address range on your lan pc - the modem only knows it is talking to the extra address on the router in its range.

    I've already gone through that configuration and it didn't work. What did work was adding a static arp entry. It seems to be only useful for this model.

    This is a Linux routing issue, not likely to be model specific - are you trying to use the same IP range for the modem on the WAN port as on the LAN?
