    Usually I am pretty good with this sort of thing but this one has me stumped.

    Right now I have set up my Linksys AM200 to do all the work and my Time Capsule to broadcast the network in bridged mode.

    However as I understand, using bridged mode prevents you from sharing the hard drive in the Time Capsule with MobileMe so I can access it over the internet.

    Does anyone have any experience who could help me switch things around? I have tried but then it does not work. I would need to have the modem bridge to the Time Capsule which would be doing all the work.

    Right now my modem is set up using RFC 2364 PPPoA. I see that there is a bridged mode only and RFC 1483 bridged. I believe that I should be using some kind of bridged mode. I also searched the forum and saw that it needed to be half-bridged. What would that be?

    Thanks for your time and help.

    Is this a DSL modem or a cable modem? If it's a DSL modem, the modem itself should be in bridge mode with your router providing the PPPoE credentials.
