    MS Router killed my DSL modem??? WTF?

    I just got my brand new MS-500 wireless base station (router), and hooked it up, everything is peachy, works fine. But I decide that I want to switch my router into "Bridging mode", so it will just act as a switch/AP. Suddenly no network, and (obviously) no internet. I decided that I wanted to have it back in "router mode". Problem, I can't log into the router, it says that a user with IP address 192.168.2.7 is already logged in (that's the IP address of the machine I was on, the only one hooked up to the router). I closed all IE windows, waited 5 mins or so for the router to "forget" I was logged in, and tried to login again, same error.

    So I bust out my handy paper clip, and press the reset button on the router. I successfully login with the default PW, and configure my PPPoE settings like it was before, except now it just is stuck on "Connecting...." forever. I thought this was funny, so I unplugged everything and put it back like it was pre-router (modem direct to 10baseT PCI card). I try to connect, and I got a 797 error immediatly after I enter my login and PW to connect. It says that the modem is either in use or cannot be found. So now I'm stuck with dialup.

    I tried it on my laptop, with the same results. Has my new router somehow fried my modem? All the lights on the modem look as they did before this fiasco.

    My modem is a Siemens Speedstream 5360, and it's NOT the model that requires the firmware update to work with a router.

    Did you try power cycling the modem ? Unplug it (from the recepticle) wait a bit (30 secs should be enough, but leave it for a min to be sure) then plug it back in. Otherwise I dunno.
