I had an WRVS4400 (but didn't use the wireless), it it died. I'm replacing with an RVS4000. I have all the settings from the prior router, but my question has to do with the DSL modem in use in conjunction with the router, because (in my absence) my wife had a conversation with SBC, trying to use the hook to the modem directly and ended up altering settings on the modem that may affect the RVS4000 when I go to install it upon its receipt from Amazon tomorrow.

We have a business that uses a third party software vendor's website; their servers access our data on our server behind the router. So we use a static IP address, and port forwarding. No problem there. But I could have sworn that, with the WRVS4400 we used to have the modem configured as bridged; as of this morning, the modem shows PPPoE, and my wife can't recall what SBC had her do in that regard!
So, for the situation I've described, should I put the modem into bridge mode (and porting it into the RVS4000). Like I said, we have a static WAN IP address, and a range of more static IP addresses.
