I apologize again for this inconvenience that it is causing you. You need to connect your laptop to your motorola modem for you to be able to set it to bridge mode. Since you have a Motolora modem 2210-01, please follow the steps below on how to bridge your modem:
-Verify that the modem is directly connected to the computer.
-Surf into the 2210 via http://192.168.1.254
-Click on the Broadband DSL Line tab.
-Click the Configure Connection button.
-Choose Bridged Ethernet from the Protocol drop-down menu.
-Click the Save and Restart Connection button.
-Click the Restart Device button.
-Click the Yes, Restart Device button.
NOTE: You will see the interface of the modem if you had successfully bridged the modem
Once you had successfully bridge the modem, you need to create a PPPoE connection in your computer. For your information, Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) is a network protocol for encapsulating Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) frames inside Ethernet frames. It is used mainly with DSL services where individual users connect to the DSL modem over Ethernet and in plain Metro Ethernet networks.
If incase this will be your first time to create a PPPoE connection, please refer to link for instructions,
After creating the PPPoE connection, then you need to connect your XBOX directly to your computer. Please follow the steps below:
-Connect the Ethernet out port on the modem to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox console using the Ethernet cable.
-Turn on your modem.
-Turn on your Xbox console, with no disc in the disc tray.
-From the Xbox Dashboard, choose Settings, and then Network Settings.
-Configure your Xbox console to use PPPoE settings provided by BellSouth.
-When entering your BellSouth Userid, be sure to include @bellsouth.net after your Userid.
Your settings are now used to connect to Xbox Live.
Progress is displayed on the Connect Status screen.
If the last item is "Connected to Xbox Live," congratulations!
You are connected to Xbox Live.
