Re: Help making a "Bridged Mode Setup Guide"

Does Rogers supply more than one Cisco modem? We have one but I'm becoming leery of it's performance because about a month after we installed it our usage doubled.

No, they currently only have the following

 

SMC wireless G gateway (the basic one for lite service only)

Cisco 3825 (not on website, but still partially available)

SMC D3GN (not on website, but still partially available)

Hitron CGN2

Hitron CGN3 (dual band)

You blink and its obsolete now.

 

So, if I can replace the one we have now, what's the bridging process for a Cisco modem? I'm planning on reconnecting our Cisco Linksys E5100 router.

Should be log in with the default password

Should be an option for disable gateway

It will restart.

Plug in from port 1 on gateway to wan on e5100

Okay. I've got everything working the way it was before with a replacement CISCO modem.

 

Now do I just disconnect the router from the modem, and go to 192.168.1.xxx? (Is it the IP Address or the Default Gateway we want?) Then login with cusadmin and Password?

 

Then what?

 

(Thanks by the way)

Re: Help making a "Bridged Mode Setup Guide"

Hey guys,

 

I just came across guides for bridging all of rogers' routers through the tech support search engine. Have a look:

I hope this helps; made an account just to share the link.

Holy smokes! There is one. This must be relatively new when they did the re-design, it wasn't there before.

I am going to poke an admin and see if they can stickey that link at the top.

Thanks Devon for the link and others posting in this thread. and GdKitty for starting this.

 

I got the Cisco and followed the instructions from the link to get it into Bridge Mode.

 

Couple of things already stated here that may help others....

 

instructions from the Rogers link do not indicate 'disable UpNP'   I did do that.

 

To setup my router.

After being in bridge mode (you can longer login to the modem gui 192.168.0.1 is expected *correct me if I am wrong about this)

 

I then

  • unplugged modem power
  • unpluged router power. (ethernet was unplugged at the start)
  • disconnected ethernet cable between pc and modem
  • connected router to modem via ethernet port
  • connected router to pc ethernet port
  • plugged router back in, gave it a few seconds
  • plugged modem back in
  • booted pc
  • logged into windows,  no internet connection....at first (yellow exclamation icon on network icon in tray).....but after a minute or two (not very long) the connection was established once the router got connected.

 

Need to check the rest of my LAN but this was fairly quick and painless. 

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Help making a "Bridged Mode Setup Guide"

So once the Cisco modem is in bridged mode and you've connected your 3rd party router (Cisco Linksys), how many lines can you plug into your router?

Re: Bridge Mode Setup Guide

Standard linksys is usually 4 wired ports.
But you can always plug in a switch for more wired ports.
You are really only limited to the # of devices by the dhcp restrictions if any on the router, etc
