I got an upgrade from my old Westell 2200 to a new d-link 2750b. The d-link has a built in ethernet hub and wireless, but I really need to have it just act as a bridge. I would much rather use my Apple Airport Extreme instead.
I am in Washington DC and I think my DSL uses PPPoE. How can I put the d-link in bridge mode so I can use the PPPoE in the Airport? This is how I had it setup with the Westell.
Right now I have the Airport setup in DHCP mode and it is grabbing an address from the d-link, so it is double natted.
What is the best configuration for this setup?
1. Access DSL 2750d through a browser http://192.168.1.1, go to setting tab
2. User name = admin! password from sticker of unit bottom
3. My Network tab, select Interned from menu options running along top. WAN DSL set to Point-to-point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE). Am in MA so changed setting to LAN-WAN Bridged Ethernet Connection over ATM (ETHoA). Select Apply. Receive message: Browser Reload...select OK.
System Tab, select Network Connections. Confirm Bridge Mode
As noted this is what I have been able to obtain from several canals to support. The unit still does not work in bridge mode. If others have additional guidance, I would appreciate the assistance.
Have you made any progress with this? I also have the 2750b and I'm tired of having to reset it multiple times per day. I would like to buy a separate wireless router to hopefully solve the issue -- possibly and airport extreme -- but I'm worried about my ability to get the d-link working in bridge mode. any advice welcome!!
