Bridge my modem and use windows to connect to a DHCP ISP (not PPPOE)
I have a few connections which I have successfully setup using a bridged modem directly connected to a basic Windows 7 box which uses PPPOE to dial the ISP with user and password.
Now I have an ISP that uses DHCP mode with no user or password needed instead of PPPOE. How can I setup Windows to connect to this via the bridge.
When ever it connects it still takes a local ip eg 192.168.1.x from the modem. So I disabled the DHCP server on the modem and now it just gets a generic couldn't find server ip 169.254.x.x.
This is I'm guessing because when I setup a new internet connection on the Windows side the only option is broadband (PPPOE) so its still trying to use user/pass.
Is there a way to use DHCP mode in this setup?
Any help greatly appreciated.
