I have a PTCL broadband connection. The DSL modem I have is a ZTE 831 Series, it is connected to my D-Link router DIR-655. Initially, I had set up the modem to connect to the Internet, but now I want to put it in bridge mode and have the router connect to the Internet. The reason I want to do this is that I was having port forwarding issues with the router and I went over to the D-Link support page and they suggested putting the modem in bridge mode.
I have configured the modem to work in bridge mode, but I cannot get my router to initiate the Internet connection.
Below is a sample Internet configuration page from the DIR 655.

The settings I am using are...
Address mode: Dynamic IP
Reconnect mode: Always on
Primary DNS address: 0.0.0.0
Secondary DNS address: 0.0.0.0
MAC address: (my DSL modem's mac address)
But I can't get the router to make the connection. Can someone please help me get this working.
