Arris – 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)
Type 192.168.0.1 in the address bar

  • Click onĀ Lan Setup
  • Go to NAT Mode and select RouterWithNAT
  • Click on Apply

Bridged Mode

This means that the modem will act as a bridge, i.e. the public IP (IP address assigned by the ISP) is going to be taken by the customer equipment such as the router instead of the modem.

To set up the modem to Bridged mode :

  • Click on Lan Setup
  • Go to NAT Mode and select Bridged
  • Click on Apply
