I have a Westell but I'm not sure of the model number.  To get this one
into "bridge" mode, you have to hard-reset it (push/hold a button?) then
start talking PPPOE at/through it.  If, instead, it sees a DHCP request,
it assume its supposed to be in "router" mode and it uses it's configs
from flash to setup the WAN site then starts handing out private
addresses internally.

Hope this helps,
