Hi Guys,

Got my 502T here for the red network (will be connected monday).

I am going to plug it into the Internet port of my Router which runs DD-WRT, but I have never been good at setting up the 502T into half bridge mode (at least thats what I think I want)

As I understand it half bridge mode the 502T will terminate the PPPoA connection and forward all traffic straight to the DD-WRT which I can use to then configure all the port fowards etc?

Can someone please write dummy proof instructions on how to do this please?

PS: My DD-WRT is and assigns addresses from

The Dlink is of course on and not sure yet what address range it assigns.

Stupid DLink.

I got the following to work:

<Internet>---<Dlink 502T>-----<Linksys WRT54G on DD-WRT v24>---<XP PC>

But whenever the modem disconnects/reconects it does not pass on the new IP address, unless I go into the router setup pages and click on RENEW.

Dlink blamed the Linksys, as they would. So I tried:

<Internet>--<Dlink 502T>---<XP PC>

Still would not update the PC now with the new IP, without a renew command being issued.

Anyone have any ideas?
