What I am trying to do is put the Surfbeam modem 2 into bridge mode so that I can pass the public facing IP to my router and let my router do the routing. I have an Asus 68U.
I want it to just be a modem and let my router do the routing, DHCP server ect.
Here is from the site http://www.exede.com/wifi-modem/
And here is the lie so far to everyone because I just called and they told me it can't work like this
I have my own wireless router. Can I use that instead of the one built into the Exede WiFi Modem?
A: Yes, any modern wireless router should work just fine with Exede. You do not have to use the built-in router.
Oh but you do, because there is no way to put it in bridge mode, even if you disable DHCP, NAT, wireless all it does is nothing. The router has nothing to pull because the modem does not present the WAN to it, because it still thinks its handling everything.
This is very frustrating, as I would of never jumped on this is this FAQ was not present. Perhaps anyone can tell me I am wrong and it is possible.
Can I get my router to work with the Modem/Wifi/Router sure it does work but it pulls an internal IP as the WAN ip, which means you are double Natting, that can cause a whole crap load of issues. And when you want to port forward stuff you now have to do it in two places.
And so far its not stable at all this way.
