I received my replacement DSL modem[1. Motorola/Netopia 2210-02-1022] on Thursday, but didn’t plug it in until tonight.
When I was trying to get my temporary 2Wire DSL modem/wireless router to work with my Linksys WRT54GL, I failed miserably. It was in the back of my mind.
Tonight, I plugged in the new DSL modem. All I had to do was change its configuration to bridge mode. After plugging it into my wireless router, I was connected and back to normal.
It took less than 10 minutes, most of which was spent plugging and unplugging cords.
Sometimes, you just gotta dig in.
Afterward, I found this guide: “How do I properly setup a Motorola 2210 modem with a Linksys router?” Nice.
