NVG510 Bridge Mode How-To

Update: Actually, there is an easy solution now. Use my NVG510 Fixer Android application. It'll set you back a $1, but it's one click and super easy. If you prefer the free route, the information on doing it manually is still available in the usual place

Note: this page really shouldn't have made it into search rankings since it's incomplete, but it did... here is what the content was:

Hello, I realize that the most frequently asked thing about the NVG510 is how to put it in a simple bridge mode. Unfortunately, the answer isn't the easiest, but I'm going to try to walk you through it.

First off, Enable telnet as described in this post

After you get the red changes saved text. Telnet should be enabled.

Now comes the fun. If you're using Windows, get Putty you don't need to install it or anything, just download putty.exe

Hey - thanks for your work on the NVG510 so far, very helpful!

I tried to get bridge mode working on my NVG510 tonight. It seems a simple "brctrl delif br1 eth0.16 ; brctrl addif br2 eth0.16" did the trick. Is this also how you did it?

@thinkdiff heh, forgot about this WIP page. That actually is extremely simple. Where did you enter these commands from?

I purchase your NVG510 fixer app from Google Play for $3 and it did not work.  It ran on my android, connected, made adjustments and completed...and nothing happened to the NVG510.  There was no change detected at all.  Of course, I rebooted and connected my sonicwall to port #1, rebooted it and nothing happened.  My configuration settings incorporated the static IP settings that were in the NVG510 into the sonicwall.  Is there a way I can contact you for some assistance?  Please contact me at kirk@pcsupportbiz.com.  thank you.
