I have tryed EVERYTHING to set my Westell 6100 modem to "bridge mode" so I can host my server to my mmorpg. I looked up how to do it and was told how to do it and nothing works! Everytime I do all the below, It does nothing but make my "internet" light on my modem go off which makes me unable to be connected to the internet. Then i have to reset my modem completely to get back online. HERE is a topic I made for this at another forum. It might be able to help...

Anyways, these are the steps I was told would bridge my connection:
-open IE
-type in 192.168.1.1
-login and go to Configuration>VC Configuration
-click edit on the first option on the list
-change mode from "routed bridge" to "bridge" & apply changes
-go to Configuration>DHCP Configuration
-change DHCP Server from "Private LAN" to "off"
-apply all changes and restart computer & modem to renew IP


If anybody knows why this STILL doesn't bridge my connections, please do tell.

I may be wrong but I believe you want to port forward not bridge. This will allow your gaame server thru your router directly to you camputer without diabling your LAN (router).
