How To Set Your Globe Broadband Aztech DSL5001EN Modem In Bridge Mode

In this guide, I will show you how to configure your Aztech DSL5001EN Modem+Router in bridge-mode, so you could integrate it with other routers like Linksys or DD-WRT flashed routers. You might probably ask… Why would I do that, the Aztech router already has a built-in router? Why still do this? Well, the answer is simple. You wanted to use a router feature that the Aztech Modem+Router won’t be able to handle. Or you plan of setting a not so simple network setup that requires various network device integration. There are several reasons really, like the ones enumerated below:

  • VPN or OpenVPN implementation
  • Multi-WAN setup
  • Integration with open-source Router OS and Firmwares (DD-WRT, OpenWRT, pfSense)
  • RADIUS Integration
  • Wifi Hotspot Implementation
  • CCTV and DVR Remote Access Implementation

About Aztech DSL5001EN Modem+Router

This modem is a combination of ADSL2+ Modem, Router and a Wireless Access Point, capable of operating 150Mbps wireless transmission speed (Wireless-N). Router feature includes; Wifi with WPS feature, 1 10/100 LAN port, DDNS (dyndns.org only) and port-forwarding feature.

Preparation

Before you follow this guide, I like to inform you that the CPE (your Aztech router) used in this guide is custom flashed to work with Globe Broadband Tattoo’s internet service. In case you didn’t know, Globe Broadband is a local ISP here in my country (Philippines). Configuration with other ISPs using the same modem will still yield similar positive result, just make sure you enter the correct values in the important input fields (VPI, VCI values and etc). To start of with this guide, prepare the things enumerated below.

Things You Need:

  • Aztech DSL5001EN
  • Working Internet Connection
  • DD-WRT flashed router or any router you might have
  • LAN Cables

Procedure

Before starting with the initial step, login to your router’s administrative page and create a backup of your current configuration. If you’re not sure on how to do this, then the first step below shall be your starting point. You need to do this so in case you need to revert back to your original settings, you can use the backup file to restore your original settings.

Note: The firmware/configuration backup page is locked with super admin authentication. You also need to have this information before proceeding. This is not supplied to you by your ISP, but you can Google your way around.

Let’s Get Started

  1. Fire up Chrome or Firefox and enter the IP address of your Aztech Modem/Router. You can access the administration page by typing like so, http://192.168.254.254 Login as

    admin and enter the super admin password. You can search for this info via Google or YouTube.

  2. When logged in, navigate to Advance Mode -> Admin page. Click Backup button and save/download your current config file to your desired destination. The default file name would be romfile.cfg, but you may rename it to whatever you want. This will serve as a backup in case you need to restore your configs. Ok cool, now you have a backup. You may now proceed to step 2.

  3. Let’s set the Aztech DSL5001EN ADSL2+ in bridge-mode.

    While still logged in, navigate to Advance Mode -> WAN -> ATM Settings page. You should see a page similar to the image below.

    Aztech-DSL5001EN-BridgeMode-Settings-2-chubbable

    Fill out and set the necessary fields like these:

    Virtual Circuit = PVC 0 Status = Activated VPI = 0 VCI = 35  
    Connection Type = Bridge Mode
    Encapsulation = 1483
    Bridged Only LLC ATM QoS = UBR
    PCR = 0
    SCR = 0
    MBS = 0
    

    After inputing the correct values, hit apply to commit the settings and will reboot your router. Upon successful commit, you’ll notice that the LED light corresponding to

    Internet label won’t light up. It’s because there is no connection since the PPoE connection shall be done from the router that you intend to use with the Aztech modem. During this mode (Bridge Mode), you can only make a PPoE connection by using a separate router to make the connection with your modem, and eventually makes a connection with your ISP using your supplied user-name and password. You’re modem should in bridge-mode now, it’s time to configure your router to make the necessary PPoE connection.

    Note: DSL LED Light should be lit up. It’s an indicator that your Aztech DSL5001EN modem is physically connected to your ISP.

  4. Setup your DD-WRT router, or any router you might have. It could be a Linksys, D-link, Encore, TP-link router or some open-source BSD based Router OS like pfSense. Take note that, you need a router or any wireless router that has a PPoE connection support.

    In this step, I’ll use my DD-WRT flashed router (Linksys WRT54G2v1 wireless router), to make the PPoE connection. It is where I should put my ISP login credentials. Let’s continue. Our Aztech modem is now in bridge-mode, so it’s time for us to make the necessary PPoE connection, by using DD-WRT’s PPoE connection settings. So grab your extra LAN cable and hookup your router with the Aztech modem.

    Plug one end of your cable to your router’s WAN port (Yellow colored port) while the other end goes to Aztech’s WAN port (Yellow colored port). It doesn’t matter whether you use a patch or crossover cable. Modems and Routers these days have auto-sensing feature that automatically detects and adapts whatever type of cable you’re using. Make sure you’re computer is using the same network class as with your router. So if you’re router’s IP address is 192.168.1.1, your computer should use 192.168.1.2.

    Now, access and login to your router’s admin page by typing it’s IP address in your browser’s address bar. Upon logging in, navigate to Setup -> Basic Setup and fill out the necessary fields, like so:

    Connection Type = PPoE
    User Name = your-user-name
    Password = your-password
    Service Name = blank
    PPP Compression = Enabled
    T-Home VDSL 7 Vlan Tagging = Leave it disabled
    MPPE Encryption = You may leave it blank
    STP = Enable Router Name = name your router whatever you want
    Host Name = name it whatever you want, to make it distinct from other network devices
    Domain Name = you may it like youlocaldomain.loc
    MTU = leave default
    

    See reference image below:

    Screenshot: DD-WRT PPoE Setup Page

    Other settings are self-explanatory and easy to follow. After filling those important fields, you can finally click Apply Settings to make your changes takes effect. PPoE settings with other routers is very much similar with this one. So you can follow this guide with whatever router you might have.

    Screenshot: DD-WRT Reboot Success

    Upon clicking Apply Settings, your router should reboot and your browser will show a progress bar that indicates a reboot sequence. When your router reboots, it will prompt your to click Continue button, and just do as it says. Cross your fingers as your router reboots. Did it reboot? Ok cool. Login again and check if you got a successful connection.

A good indicator for this is your WAN IP address. If you got this address, it means you’re already connected to the Internet. In my router’s screen-shot, you can see that I’ve got a dynamic IP address of 10.214.183.94. In addition to this, when you navigate to Status -> WAN page, you can see your Login Status as connected. It may be slightly different from your router brand/model, just look for similar pages from your router. When you got a WAN IP, you’re now set to browse the Internet. Congratulations, you made it this far.

It’s a Wrap

Are you successful in following this guide? If so, please leave your feedback below. If you’re not, I’ll try to help you in troubleshooting your issues and you can ask me a question by putting your comments. This is one real-world example of why you would set your ADSL Modem in bridge-mode. In my current setup, I have to put my Aztech DSL5001EN modem in bridge-mode because I need to interface it with my pfSense box. My pfSense box makes the PPoE connection plus, it sets a firewall and VPN connection between the Internet and my local network. In case you still didn’t know, pfSense has built-in support for OpenVPN (a free VPN implementation). I can’t live without an encrypted connection to the Internet. That’s why I chose to use pfSense (plus OpenVPN), to implement a basic home network security.

Hi, I'm Chubby! That's what my friends call me. I'm a tech savvy dude who is passionate in learning stuffs by himself. I post stuffs that I recently learned and also stuffs that I'm very knowledgeable of. I also post articles here to serve as my own reference and knowledge base archiving.

  • Francis Salazar

    Sir,

    1st off.. thanks for this quide… i do have a couple of questions
    1. will this work with a dlink router (DIR-615 to be exact)
    2. if i decide to this the router steps are basically the same?
    3. will this make my internet connection more “stable” i have encountered time that the internet light is blinking meaning that there is an active internet connection but the indicator in my laptop and desktop says otherwise. i was wondering if doing this can help my stability issues.

    thanks!

  • Hi there Francis!

    Thank you for posting your comments. Generally, the DD-WRT part of the guide is similar to most routers available in the market today. Set your Internet connection to PPoE to accept a bridged connection from your modem. I wish this answers your question 1 and 2.

    For your third question, I can’t think of any that will negatively affect your connection stability or will fix an issue if you wish to follow this guide.

    Basically, this guide walks your through on how to set up a bridged connection between a modem and a router.

    In this guide, the Aztech DSL5001-EN is a modem/router combo, and was set in bridged-mode so that it could connect to the DD-WRT router, which has a more router features and capability than that of the router built-in to the Aztech router.

    You connectivity issue might be from your client side, meaning, from your laptop connectivity settings or probably from your router’s setting.

    Check your link quality between your router (DIR-615) and your client devices, if you’re having some connection issue. It may be a problem within your LAN.

    If you want to check your Internet uptime or connection activity, login to it’s web-ui and then check the logs.

  • edz

    i was able to bridge mode my aztech dsl5001en modem but my router dlink dir868L did not reboot when i apply the ppoe settings. can you assist me in setting up my dir 868L, thanks in advance 🙂

    • Reynold

      Hi edz, successful ka ba sa setup ng DIR868L? yung connection palaging “Busy” sakin 🙁

  • Hello there Edz! In general, you don’t need to reboot the router just to make the settings takes effect. You only need to hit the “Apply” button (or similar words) to commit whatever changes you made on your router. If you’re having difficulty with the settings, you could reset your router and start from fresh.

    Hello Mr.Chubbable – I need help to connect my PS4 with the Aztech5018EN to get a NAT type 2 or 1. It is currently getting NAT type 3 which is a restricted and giving me a hard time playing online. Can you help on this? Thanks in advance

    • Do you need it for single PS4 device within your LAN?

  • nayashing

    Hello sir,I want to use my aztech dsl5001 as a wireless repeater so I would be able to connect it to the main router(aztech dsl5005) and share the internet so I can have access in my backyard too,is there any options or any open source firmware for this model available? I searched for it a lot but the only info I got is that it has WDS compatibility but I couldn’t find any wds settings in wireless menu. So please help me if there is any way to use it as a repeater,many thanks..

    • Hi there! Thanks for reading my post. To answer your question… YES you could do what you wish, you don’t need any third-party firmware, though the Modem is not really supported by any.

      To accomplish what you want, you just need to disable DHCP from your Aztech DSL5001, then get a LAN cable and hook one end to one of your Aztech DSL5005 LAN port and then hook one end to your Aztech DSL5001 LAN port.

      And that’s it!

      Configure your wireless settings on your Aztech DSL5001 according to your needs, set security and encryption methods.

      • nayashing

        Hi! Thanks for your response, but my problem is that I don’t have Ethernet cable that long to connect two devices to each other and I really don’t want to do it this way because I have no room for it ,so is there any way to do it wirelessly? I mean repeating my DSL5005 signal through DSL5001 wirelessly and using no cable.

        • With wireless clients too on the DSL5001? If so, then there’s nothing you can do.

    hi sir, i want to know if you can connect to a vpn using a standard aztech dsl5018en modem/router from GLOBE. I’m using a 5Mbps residential plan. It seems that I am behind NAT. Can you help me connect to a VPN?

    • NO you can’t.

      The device has no feature or capability of doing that. If you want to connect to a VPN service provider, you have three options; 1.) Connect to the service by downloading a profile. This method needs you to download and install a software. 2.) Use a router that has VPN connection capabilities, either built-in to your router’s firmware or by using a third-party firmware, if your router supports it. 3.) Use a software router like Pfsense, if you’re tech savvy enough to setup one.

      If you need direct and personal help about VPN, contact me.

      Some of VPN service providers you could use:

          Hi sir, i tried it. But im getting the redirection page. Do i still need to clone the aztech mac address?

          • Check your account settings Bro. Make sure you entered your username and password correctly. You’re on DSL right? So no need to mac clone.

            Note: VPN Pass-through does not mean VPN capable, it only means that It allows and accept VPN traffic to pass through.

          • The Silencer

            Yes, I’m on DSL.

            Thanks for the assistance, Sir. Appreciate the help.

          • Post a comment if you need further assistance. It’s my pleasure to help.

    Hi Sir Chubbable, would this be able to solve the double NAT problem of globe when you put your modem/router to bridge? I’m also using aztech DSL5001en with a cisco router running DD-WRT. It seems that whenever I tried playing online games particularly Warframe, it always tells me Strict NAT, need to forward UDP ports 4950 and 4955 to a certain ip address. I forwarded the ports but still strict NAT. Or should I get a static IP from globe? Thanks!

    • Are you sure your connection is double NATed? Usually Wimax and 4G connections are double NATed. With DSL, you only get a NAT connection starting from your own router. But no NAT connection from Globe to your modem. That means, your Public IP address, is your real Public IP address, and no one else shares with you. Unlike Wimax or 4G.

      Also, getting a static IP from Globe is ridiculously expensive. But I have a trick to get a static IP, it’s a paid one but way cheaper than Globe. It’s $5 below per month.

      By the way, make sure that you set a static IP to your Console or Computer.

      Lastly, this post should generally help you fix your port forwarding issues.

  • Jacky Liao

    hi sir, I also have the same dilemma with The Silencer one of the comments below… I also have an aztech dsl5018en modem/router from GLOBE. I’m using a 5Mbps residential plan.

    I am using Cisco AnyConnect Client for my work. My problem is once I connect to my VPN using such client. I couldn’t browse any other websites but once I disconnect it.. I can just browse fine.

    I read that the said modem/router doesn’t support any vpn feature would this be the case?

    I also have a PLDT dsl line… no problems at all.. I can browse fine and connect to our companies VPN using the client.

    Do you know any model of modem/router of globe that has this feature?

    Thanks 🙂

    • Check and see VPN-passthrough is enabled.

  • Paolo Natanawan

    Hi Sir,

    I’m trying to connect to our office VPN and I have a TP Link TL-WR940N. All the VPN settings are enabled but I’m still getting the GRE (Generic Routing Encapsulation) error. What could I be doing wrong?

    • VPN Settings are enabled? Could you post a link to a screenshot image?

      • Paolo Natanawan

        Hi Sir. Please see attached screenshots.

        • How do you connect to your office VPN? Is it by using a downloaded config file? What protocol is being used (OpenVPN, L2TP, etc)? What Port is used?

          • The Silencer

            i don’t know the port but we’re using the default VPN connection by Windows. I’m using windows 8.1 by the way.

          • Since I don’t have the Router, I won’t be able to help you further. If only I could tinker with the Router. For both of you , here is a generic troubleshooting tip.

            Choose your VPN Type properly from your router. Explore your router settings. VPN Types/Protocols are; OpenVPN, PPTP, L2TP. For OpenVPN, make sure port 1194 udp/tcp is not blocked by firewall.

        • The Silencer

          that’s the same problem im having sir. in my office, Globe solved it by giving us a static IP. for my home, i’ve also done bridging but to no avail. hope sir chubbable can find a solution.

          • Nice marketing technique by Globe, but you really don’t need to have a static IP address if you’re the client side. I’ve been using my Aztech modem for VPN since two years ago.

        • If you’re office use OpenVPN protocol, make sure the default port is not blocked on your router. Check your firewall settings for this. The default OpenVPN port is 1194.

  • Kevin Golfo

    Hello Sir,

    Can you help me set up my router so that I could have an OPEN NAT for my ps4. we are currently using the router from globe and another router which we bought. thank you

    • Hey there Kevin! Thanks for reading my post. Generally, with your kind of setup… what you need to do first is to set your Modem to Bridged-Mode, then configure your Router’s WAN settings to have a PPoE WAN connection. Then enter your ISP issued username and password from thereon.

      After setting up a bridged-mode connection from your Modem to your Router, configure your Router and port forward the necessary ports to your PS4 Console. Read the guide from this post; https://chubbable.com/changing-nat-type-on-ps4-or-xbox

      If you need more help, post your exact Modem and Router Mode. We might help you further.

      For more info, watch the video demo on how you would setup a bridged-mode in most Aztech Modem models. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVgfPgdOLPY

      • Kevin Golfo

        Thank you for the fast reply. would update you with the result. by the way we’re using a router from cdr king. which router would I do the port forwarding?.. the one from globe or the other router? would the router from globe still have wifi capabilities if it is on bridge mode?

        • You know what? That is why I mentioned to you that If you need more help, post your exact Modem and Router Model.

          If the Modem issued to you has a built-in Router in it, then you could use that one. No need to setup bridged-mode.

          If you however set your Modem in bridged-mode, then all connection settings/configuration should be done on the Router. This means, your Modem’s routing capability and WiFi connection will be disabled.

          • Kevin Golfo

            okay sir. thanks for the info.. im not sure about the model but the modem globe issued was aztech which came with a router. and we’re also using a router from cdr king..im not sure about the model. we use two routers since 1 router cannot accommodate the number of people connected

          • “im not sure about the model but the modem globe issued was aztech”

            > Checkout the label/sticker on the bottom part of the device

            > OR, Login to the device’s WebUI, you can find the model from thereon

            “we use two routers since 1 router cannot accommodate the number of people connected”

            > You don’t have to use multiple Routers just to accommodate any number of client users. That’s impractical. If you’re out of LAN Port, simply use a network hub AKA network switch.

  • Annesaveh Teh

    Hi Sir,

    First off, thanks for this guide. I followed all the instructions mentioned here but I’m still getting the Globe Tattoo redirection page. I have the Aztech DSL5001EN and Cisco Linksys E2500 router, in the Linksys status page it says that I have a WAN IP and that my connection is up. Any help is much appreciated.

    • Probably you mis-typed your PPoE username and password. Make sure you did it right.

      username@globelines.com.ph

      is the common username format used by Globe. If you’re not sure about your password, ask it from Globe Customer Support.

      • Annesaveh Teh

        Hi Sir, thanks for the prompt response. I’m sure that I’ve typed my username and password correctly. I did it again and made sure that I entered it correctly. Still getting the redirection page..

        • Is your connection working before you did the bridged-mode process thing?

          Common reasons for the redirection issue are; account related, network issue on Globe’s end, Network repair or any ongoing restoration in your area.

          Also, you may do this to troubleshoot the issue:
          – Restore back your Aztech’s original configuration.
          – Go back to the bridge mode section of the Web UI and double check on the VCI value.

          If you read my post:
          https://chubbable.com/globe-broadband-modem-aztech-dsl5001en-modem-bridge-mode

          You’ll see my screenshot of the config page, the VCI value is 35. But this may be different in your case. I suspect the value differs from other areas.

  • cescpistol

    Would you know how to update the router firmware? I found the option, but I can’t find the update file anywhere. When I complained to Globe about the slow internet connection, the technical team said that it was because I was running Windows 8.1. So I’m thinking if this is only a firmware issue. Either that or the Globe technician is totally bs-ing me. Thanks.

    • That’s total BS man.

      Because you’re running Win8 you’ll get slow connection? Total crap! But why ask for the Modem Firmware, that wouldn’t help you either.

  • 박상준

    Awesome post.
    Im sure this is d 1 that i was looking for.
    Actually, I had a same issue with you.
    was having hard tym setting up those personal VPN and WOL with globe’s junky router.
    and here you are!!
    Btw I’d like to have a question, hope you dont mind..
    I am planning to set small office in local area.
    and will purnish the globe tatoo dsl,
    after that, will put ‘router2’ which has personal VPN,WOL and DDNS option
    and have both router bridged.
    Can i expect that
    1. I will use the philippine ip address wherever I go with VPN in router2?
    2. and I can reboot the router whenever I need (it’s with DDNS option, so I can have web access even the globe’s one is dianmic IP)?
    3. and I will be able to wake up my computer on lan connected to router2 with WOL function?
    What do you think boss?
    in my miserable knowledge, It might be worked out,
    but I just wanna be sure, by someone’s opinion who is expert on this matter.
    Thank you so much in advance!

    oh..have few more question all of sudden.
    1. Do you think I can reboot the globe router in remote with bridge mode?

    • Hi! You can do all (1, 2 and 3) of those, provided that you have set the proper settings like DDNS, Port Forwarding and Firewall. Also don’t forget to setup Remote Web Access properly.

  • curious cat

    Is there a way to use the wifi for both the 5001EN and dd-wrt simultaneously? I’m
    setting up the dd-wrt to connect to a VPN and leave the 5001EN’s wifi
    intact so I always have the option to switch to a Philippine IP address.

    Thanks.

    • Yes of course. Use DD-WRt as an access point, you need to disable it’s DHCP server and set WAN port to DHCP. OR just use lan-to-lan connection between the Aztech and DD-WRT

    I have some problem configuring the router. first step na ginawa ko log in sa 192.168.254.254 tapos login sa admin account then set sa bridge mode at lahat ng settings chineck ko kung tama and then next kong gagawin i on si second router which is the dd wrt kinabit ko yung cable sa port 1 ng router 1 at connect yung port 1 ng router 1 sa yellow or blue ng router 2. ngayon cinonect ko yung pc ko sa port 1 ng router 2 para maaccess ko yung 192.168.1.1 nag try na ako sa ipv4 na iset yung address ko to 192.168.100.105 or 192.168.1.2 after nun hindi ko na alam gagawin hindi ko maaccess yung second router ko. binalik ko nalang sya to ppoe para makapag net ulit.

    • Ganito yun, kapag pinalitan mo ang LAN IP ng 2nd router mo, kelangan mo ding irefresh and IP address ng computer mo. Kapag naka bridge-mode na ang Aztech or anumang router, dina ito magbibigay ng IP address dynamically, ang magbibigay na dapat ng IP address ay ang 2nd router mo. Make sure that DHCP is enabled on your 2nd router. Then referesh your connection. You can do this by disabling and enabling again your LAN, or use DOS command like so;

      type:

      ipconfig /release

      then enter.

      type:

      ipconfig /flushdns

      then enter

      type:

      ipconfig /renew

      then enter

      You should get a new and updated IP address

      NOTE: Dont forget to save/apply/reboot your 2nd router after changing your LAN IP or DHCP settings.

    Hi Chubbable! I have a bit of a problem. I have a Fortinet model wifi. Set the globe to bridge mode as stated above. I did it also for PLDT. Works fine with PLDT. But with globe, it seems I can only send imsgs and not browse the web. I am not a tekky person. Can you kindly help me identify my problem? I know it is with Fortigate/Fortinet but I can’t seem to put my finger on it. Thanks in advance!

    • Did you configure DNS settings in your Fort***** device?

      • shuttereyebags

        What shall I place on the DNS? 8.8.8.8?

        • You should not set that manually, so it would use the default DNS server assigned by your ISP. Just leave it blank or enter your routers IP address.

    Hi Chubbable, my DSL5001EN has a port forwarding and our CCTV used to be accessible from outside. Just more than a year ago, it no longer works. My friend from Globe said it’s double NAT or something. So my public IP is being shared by others. Does it mean this setup will not work on me? Is there no other choice than getting static IP from Globe? If yes, I’m interested on the cheaper way of getting it

    • There are other ways to circumvent this type of situation. If you need professional help with this (CCTV Remote View though double NATed) type of network, drop me a message using my contact us form. I will do it for you for a little professional fee.

    Hi Chubbable,

    How did you configure ddns for remote access base on the ip that was given to your router by ppoe server (10.214.183.94) it is a private ip not public ip?

    Hi. If Im going to do this on my Aztech DSL5001EN, is there a chance that my modem/router will have a Bandwidth Monitor features even if my second router doesnt have that feature so called “Bandwidth Monitor”? Or it doesnt have a firmware like ddwrt, tomato that support that kind of feature. Thanks alot!
