All this go me here!

Im in desperate need of help because if I want to play , I need to connect directly my computer to the modem and leave the router aside.

So basically what I want to know is:

-If I set those correctly, will it damage or change any internet settings in the way to make internet slower or any different kinds?

Model Names are:
(MODEM) - Arris TM502G

. you go for port forwarding

-How do I set my modem as a bridge and router as router?
A bridge connection would require you to create a dial up broadband connection...first by going into modem setting-wan-selecting bridge connection instead of PPPoE or PPPoA. Then creating a dial up broadband connection in network and sharing center.
Your router should be handling the PPPoE if you bridge the modem.

Well I got a static IP for my computer ( not for the router ) and I portforwarded the ports I had too. It still isn't fixed. I tried to acess my modem page but I can only view the status page but Im pretty sure the problem is the router. Maybe I have double NAT?

About setting the modem as bridge, could you tell me how to do that exactly, step by step? Im still a noob in this sord of things. And doing so wouldn't it require to reconfigure my dad's and my brother's internet connection?

Well I might have to buy a new modem because I don't know the password to login the Advanced tab on the modem page. Any1 would mind telling me a good and cheap modem ? Im a 15 year old kid so I can take up to €35 max to buy a modem.

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1

Arris login: But you can't change any settings. This modem is a cable modem...this is a newer version of what I got from Comcast cable.

Depending on your isp, you may not be able to get a different modem. You never told us what isp you have...

I would investigate another router with more features, but those tend to be more expensive...

Ok I think I found out something that might work. Since my modem and router both the NAT funcionality ( I think ) , I tought maybe disabling the NAT funcionality on my router ( SMCWBR14S-N2 ) would maybe stop the conflict between my router and modem. But im not sure if it's a good idea or if it will work cuz I read that NAT prevent hacker attacks and stuff.

Please tell me your opinion about doing this!


EDIT: Sorry for Double-Post! Didn't notice ! Q_Q
