How do I configure AT&T BGW210 in bridge mode?

I am trying to configure my BGW210 to run in as close to bridge mode as I can get. I've pulled up guides and walkthroughs for this but every time I believe I've configured it properly I just get no network connection. right now I've left the BGW210 stock reset except turned off wifi and piped the connection onto my router and turned off DHCP on my router. I'm having many issues with connectivity and can't seem to get full fiber speeds. I've verified all my cables are at least cat5e and have tried running through everything from scratch reset multiple times. please someone help me.

The gentleman spent hours running my fiber line and set their device and when I spoke to him about the BGW210 he said I all I would have to do is put the modem/router in bridge mode and leave my network exactly as before. I am coming from Spectrum and I was hoping to just switch the main line as I was using my own modem before and had the rest of my network configured how I wanted. I just wanted to switch the input to my router to gigabit.

the max speeds I'm receiving wired to my modem or router directly never exceed 450

Glad that you figured it out, although from "Sting (auto spell correct for "still"?) not getting the" at the end of your posting, not sure what's going on at your end *smile*.

 

Enjoy.

Question, I have my BGW210 in pass through mode, but now that my Ubiquiti USG has the 192.168.1.254 IP, how can I access the BGW210 to turn off the radios or make any changes at all?

Hi,

 

I recently purchased a Netgear Nighthawk x10 R9000 and set it up with AT&T fiber (Arris BGW210). I configured the AT&T gateway with the IP passthrough as directed here by phear86 and disabled wifi on the gateway as well. I believe everything is working, as I'm connected to the internet. I tried checking for double NAT'ing and, not being super network savvy, don't think I'm experiencing any. My question is, initially over wifi with the new Netgear router I was seeing 500+ mbps for speed tests. Now its more around 300mbps. In either case/speed, I don't actually notice much difference in speed of my webpages loading. Are there additional configurations I could check/change to increase my speed noticeably, e.g. disable unnecessary firewalls perhaps, etc? I just want to get the most speed out of the ISP service and router I've purchased. Thanks in advanced 🙂

Did this for my ASUS RT880U (AC3100 Dual-Band). Although, I also manually entered my router's MAC. The other thing is enabling radio on my router after disabling it on BGW210. Here's where I made changes on the RT880U's page.

@theSpivster Change The ubiquity is to 2.1.  You’ll be able to access the gateway after that.

Looking at phear86's post, after entering the settings for IP Passthrough on the modem's configuration page, he said to ensure Wan Connection Type on the router is set to Automatic IP.  How do I do that?  Will I be able to access the router's configuration immediately after setting IP Passthrough and before rebooting the system?

Go to the WAN settings of the Wireless router and set it there. You should be able to access the router settings. If I recall, I didn’t need to reboot my ASUS router after connecting it to the gateway. It’s a good idea to reboot it just to ensure all your WiFi devices will connect to it.

Thank you. Can someoneplease help with 2 quick questions?

 

- Can you confirm the cable should be connected from a LAN port on the BGW210 to the WAN port of the router? 

- Do the other LAN ports of the BGW210 continue to work after turning on IP Passthrough? 

 

Appreciate it. Not very good at networking.

Yes and yes. The other lan ports would be on a different network than the router. I use my other 3 gateway ports for U-verse stb’s.
