Bridge mode disables the modem’s NAT capability and allows a router to function as a DHCP server without causing an IP address conflict.

Because programmes like VPN, P2P, and remote management require a public IP address on the router’s WAN port for a successful connection, the modem must be bridged before connecting to a router.

  • To begin, connect to the Orbi’s Wi-Fi. The router comes with a key that may be found on the bottom.
  • After that, go to the official Orbi login website and use the connection to access the internet.
  • When the Netgear router detects a PPPoE connection, it will prompt you for the username and password. This is necessary in order to connect to the router’s switchboard.
  • To login to the credentials, double-check that you’ve entered the correct information. This will take you to the web interface for your router.
  • After that, you must enter the router’s login and PPPoE in bridge mode before moving on to the next stage.
  • The router gateway will be instantly detected by Netgear Orbi, and you will be able to access the internet.
  •  Transparent bridge mode should be enabled on the modem. Then switch to router mode on the Orbi router.
  • If you can’t bridge the modem, deactivate ALL wifi radios on the modem and set the modem’s DMZ to the Orbi router’s IP address. The Orbi router can then be used in Router mode.
  • Alternatively, disable all wifi radios on the modem and connect the Orbi router to it, LAN to LAN, and set the Orbi router to AP mode.
