I wanted to try setting up my ActionTec P5001a DSL modem/router in bridged mode with a Linksys E2500 router for improved NAT performance. Switching the modem to bridged mode and the router to PPPoE worked perfectly, but now I seem to have no way to access the modem GUI if I want to do things like turn off its wireless antenna. (I was also thinking about disabling its NAT and DHCP functions, although are those are even relevant when it's in bridged mode?)
I've tried accessing it through the original IP address it used (192.168.0.1) both through the router and directly plugged into one of the modems Ethernet ports, but it seems to be no longer accessible through an IP address.
Is there a workaround for restoring the modem's default settings or another method to access the GUI besides through a browser using an IP address?
Thanks for any suggestions!
