Thomson – Setting the wireless modem to Bridge/Router mode

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 in the address bar

1. Go to Status and click on Switch Mode
2. Switch mode should be selected as Legacy RG IPv4  Mode
3. After click Apply
