Using Netopia 3347NWG as a modem
My ISP is AT&T.
I have a Westell 6100 modem. After my old router, a DIR-655, got zapped by some electric charge from a nearby thunderstorm, I bought a Netgear WNDR3800 router. But I have not been able to get the Netgear router to connect to the Westell 6100 modem reliably ( please see Problems connecting modem and router ).
A friend had given me a Netopia 3347NWG router/modem some time ago but I had never attempted to use it. I was able to get into the web setup screens of the 3347NWG and, without attempting to connect the Netgear router to it, I was able to connect to the Internet via the setup screen. But every attempt to actually go to a web address would fail with a timeout, and efforts to ping always failed with a timeout. Yet the 3347NWG setup said I was connected.
Does anybody know how to setup the 3347NWG so it actually can connect to the Internet correctly so that I am able to surf to a web page or ping an address successfully ?
Does anybody know how to setup the 3347NWG as a modem ( called Bridge mode in the Westell 6100 terminology ) so that I can use it strictly as a ADSL modem and try to use it with my Netgear WNDR3800 router ?
If I can not use the 3347NWG with my Netgear router I had planned to send the Netgear router back for a replacement since it is not connecting relaibly to my Westell 6100 modem. But if I can get the 3347NWG to work as a modem and reliably connect my Netgear router to it, I will not have to send back the Netgear router for another one.
