Can't connect to the internet

Siemens / Gigaset se568

Specs: Windows XP
Dear Experts. I am having this issue with
Siemens Gigaset SE568 configuration. I am
trying to connect to the internet but all i get is
just an IP.
I have plugged the internet cable into the
LAN/WAN port and I am not sure how to
configure the modem to use it as a router by
giving me local IPs while letting me connect to
the internet.
If i connect the internet cable to Port 1 in the
modem, the modem then gives me a public IP
and lets me connect to the internet. But i just
need a local IP while i still can connect.
Hope someone is patient enough to walk me
through. Thanks!

Connect one cat5 cable from the modem to the WAN port on the router & a second cat5 cable from a LAN port on the router to the PC.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

Thanks Guapo, i am sorry i wasn't clear. I am a noob so
please bear with me:

I am trying to connect my Gigaset SE568 device directly to
the internet on LAN/WAN 4 so i can use it as a router.
I reset it to default and deleted any existing VC, then i
configured the Port 4 to be used for WAN, bridged
connection, I have enable NAPT and rebooted, but the device
is not getting a WAN IP and hence i am not able to connect
to the internet. When i disable the NAPT the device gets a
WAN IP but my laptop that is wirelessly connected to the
modem does not connect to the internet.
If i configure Port 4 as LAN then the modem works as a
switch and provide me with the ISP IP and i can connect to
the internet but i loose the router functionality.
I need to be able to use this device as a router, to get internal
IPs on my machines and still be able to
connect to the internet.
Can you please help me on that?
Thanks and Regards.

"bridged connection"

that was the wrong choice since that just sets the router to "pass thru" the isps single assigned ip.

You want to choose nat mode to engage routing. Then you need to setup your lan dhcp scope to something other than the ip subnet the isp is assigning to the wan interface.

Wanderer thanks, but when i choose LAN/WAN port to operate
as a WAN port, i get 2 options: 1-Bridged connection 2- PPPoP
And if i chose PPPoP, i am not sure how to configure it from
there. do you have any idea?

ppoe requires a user name and password.
this is information you would get from your ISP if that is how you connect.

I am looking at the online manual and the dsl connects to the grey port. Lan ports are yellow. Does not appear you can configure ANY port to be the wan port which makes sense since the wan port is rj11 whereas the lan port is rj45

Perhaps a re-read of the user manual is in order?
