How to Use Bridge Mode on a Wireless Gateway
It is increasingly common for most Internet Service Providers to provide a Gateway, a modem with a router built-in, to aid people in getting online.
In some cases, though, either due to the features offered, or just comfort with the device you already have, you may end up wanting to continue using a router already own, rather than theirs. And, in most cases, using two routers at the same time on a small home network is not only overkill, but can cause a lot of problems.
The idea of turning off the router portion, but leaving the modem portion of the device on is, in general, called 'Bridging'.
This guide will help walk you through bridging your Gateway so you can use your own router instead.
We have specific guides available for this process for some Internet Service Providers.
