Problem is, you cannot set up DMZ Hosting while the Westell 7500 is in Routed Bridge mode.
I do not want to set up an additional router with my Westell 7500.
It is a Modem/Router combo and I wish to utulize both aspects of that.
Currenty I have yet to find a workaround with the Westell 7500 w/ PS3 connected via Wi-Fi.

Geez, this is the only game ive been waiting a year for and only last week was i having slow internet problems and they came and worked on it and told me to replace the modem, verizon sent me the new modem (quess which!) . Now i seem to stall at 65% load for 2 mins and when i can getinto mod spot i cant connect online. Please someone tell me that somwhere is working on a patch for this. i dont want to have to return this game or sell it off if i have too. Im not super computer savvy but i still have my old wirespeed modem. If i hook that to phone line and just ps3 would that solve the problem until a reall fix is available? If it did work, and i hooked phone line back to westell 7500 after i was done with ps3 would it screw up any of my regular internet connections?

They have been basically working on a patch for this for at least a month for us Verizon users....And being the fact that the only person who has requested trouble shooting was a user from the forum (which may/may not work... Maybe oneextreme can put a link here to his work around) I really don't have that much faith in UFG solving the problem.

i didnt say to bridge it though... and it works fine look up my stats on modnation.. i suck.. but im now like level 7
i said to set it to static ip - then change the router settings to DMZ - and remove the static IP.
One thing to note is that , if your internet connection goes down - when it re syncs - you have to disable your network connection on the ps3 and restart it to gain the outside IP again.. but it works like a charm. If you have a question on how to do it send me a message and ill try to help.

Your missing the point here.
When using the Westell 7500 as your Modem AND Router, that is it's "Routed Bridge" mode.
Basically that's how you can use the Router part of the Modem.
The only other option is "Bridge" mode, where it's just a Modem, essientally disabling the Router portion.
This may have some affects of resolving some concetion issues, but then you have to have everything as a Wired connection.
That I cannot do as I require a WAN.
(This is the case, such as Verizon, where the ISP does not use PPPoE, in which case Routed Bridge is what replaces that.)

Actually all verizon Ive worked with PPPOE. It is easy to mess bridged route mode up.
There are two types of bridge route mode. THere is a bridge to the router in the modem/router. This is called a multiuser modem etc. This is just a connect from the modem to the router.
There is a Bridge route which doesnt use PPPOE but connects to the ISP like it part of a home network (like that not same heh) the diff is PPPOE you have a uername and pass. With bridge its just on etc.
Verizon is PPPOE over the WAN and the westell is bridge route mode in it for the modem router.
Hope that explains it.
Its PPPOA you can only do half bridge to a diff router since the modem needs to login. PPPOE can do a full bridge to a router then rotuer log in this makes the westell 7500 just modem.

Hmm, well that may or not be so.
To my knowledge I have yet to see my Verizon use PPPoE, but then again I could check into that.
But regardless, your still talking about an instance where I put the Westell 7500 in Bridge mode and link it to another Router.
I need a fix for using the Westell 7500 as my Modem AND Router.
EDIT: Well it seems that the Verizon I have uses DHCP.
It seems Verizon uses both, but you get one or the other depending on your location.

Onextreeme i see where you're going ive been at work so i misread the bridged-router part.. however - i will say this to Iyashii
My method works exactly as what you're asking for... i don't understand why you think it wont... i have my ps3 in the dmz.. i still use my laptop wirelessly from the westell 7500 - and my android connects to the same router and a hardwired gaming PC... have no problems if you follow my guide as i laid it out, you can effectively use your westell alone with no other router.
now i admit i havent tried to VPN in to work yet with these new settings but everything else has worked fine...
What are you connecting to that would not work in this setup??
