Information

 
Question
How do I enable or disable bridge mode on the SBG10 gateway?
Answer
The SBG10 operates as Wi-Fi cable modem and provides Internet access to devices (up to 253 devices) in the home network.  Setting the SBG10 in Bridge mode disables the router and wireless functions and will operate as a cable modem.  A device directly connected to the SBG10 with an Ethernet cable will receive the Public IP address from the Cable Provider for Internet access.  Installation of a Wi-Fi router will be required to provide Internet access to multiple devices in the home network.  This document contains the following sections:
