Arris – Setting the wireless modem to Bridge/Router mode

By default the modem is set to router mode. This means that the public IP (IP address assigned by the ISP) is taken by the modem. You will usually need to set your modem to ‘Router Mode’ when your devices will be connecting to the Modem and no Routers will be involved.

To set your modem to Router mode :

Open your Browser (Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari)
Enter 192.168.0.1 in the address bar

1.Go to Lan Setup
2.Go to NAT Mode and select RouterWithNAT
3.Click on Apply
