[SOLVED] No internet after power outage using bridge mode. works as normal modem

I'm running a SME8 box in server-gateway mode, connecting via an iConnect Access 621 modem running in bridge mode.
Over the weekend, the RCD safety switch tripped, killing everything.
The server, and the modem were both on a UPS, but that obviously didnt last long enough...

Anyway, upon bootup, no internet.
I reconfigured the server, changed the password, rebooted, reset the password and rerebooted... to no effect.
I ended up resetting the modem to factory defaults, logged into it, manully configured it for non-bridge mode, and it connects fine...
However, when I reenable bridge mode, it fails to connect.

In the past, when there has been a power outtage, the internet has come back on immediately.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to a course of action to take.
I am suspicious of the modem, however as it connects in non-bridge mode, I am not sure.
I have gone through the server configuration and checked all settings are correct.

Any suggestions as to which logs I should be looking at?

Thank you for any info you can provide.

ISSUE resolved...
I forgot the third time lucky rule.
Tried again, exactly the same proceedure, and hey, it works!
