I could call AT&T but I've heard the "free" modem means another contract. I will see though.
Weird thing about bridging...my modem is set for PPoE, not bridging. And has worked fine up until now. Related you think?
No. The modem side of the modem/router will always have some DSL setting, usually PPoE or Static IP. It is the router side that you will want bridged. So basically only the modem is working.
My Westall was set for PPoE even though I had a Static IP and it worked fine.
I went with at&t uverse tv/internet at home so got a new modem/router (2-wire). With no contract.
Can't hurt to call them. Give it a try. They'll probably mail one.
