DSL modem and cisco linksys router

Specs: N/A
Ok, so I recently bought a linksys router so that I could
have wifi for my iPod touch. However, I have been having
problems with it. My friend's father came over and he
helped by putting my DSL modem in bridge mode. That
was about three weeks ago and it has been working
great. However, a few days ago, I was on the internet
and got off but then remembered I had to check
sozmething else. The minute I opened the Internet
explorer tab, it said page could not be found. The weird
thing was, in the taskbar, it said I was connected. Later
on though, it said I wasn't connected. I have a feeling it's
my router and I want to take the DSL modem out of
bridge mode so I can just use the modem and sacrifice
wifi. Does anyone know what's wrong and how I can take
the modem out of bridge mode? And, I've also tried to
enter router and modem IP adress in the adress bar (not
together, separatley) and it comes up saying page cannot
be found. I know I entered the right IP addresss so, I
don't know what's wrong. I also think one of my accounts
on my computer has a virus because only one account
freezes and the other one doesn't. Not that that has to do
with the router and stuff. So if I could get help that would
be great. Thanks.

"I want to take the DSL modem out of
bridge" No you don't unless you do not wish to use your Linksys any more. By putting your modem into Bridge Mode you have turned off the routing in the modem so that you can hookup your own router. If you take it out of Bridge mode then you will not be able to use the Linksys. I know the Tech support Guys tell you to do this and it is only because they are not trained on how to trouble shoot a Linksys. I recommend you call Linksys instead of the DSL company or better yet get your friend back over to help you out.
