How do I bypass router bridging on a Comcast cable modem?

I believe Comcast turned on router bridging on my internet connection, where it prevents me from using a router on my connection to the internet. I've checked the router, upgraded the firmware, done all of the resets, and everything else seems to be fine.
This has happened to me before where Earthlink turned on bridge-mode on their DSL modem. I was eventually able to go into the controls for the modem and turn it off but not after about 3 days of complete frustration. What I need is the URL for the modem. With the Earthlink situation, I had to guilt the lady at technical support into giving it up. I'm hoping somebody here at Mefi has been through the same thing and can just pass along those numbers.
