Windows 7: Bridge my modem and use windows to connect to a DHCP ISP (not PPPOE)

Bridge my modem and use windows to connect to a DHCP ISP (not PPPOE)

Hi All

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.

Thanks
