Bridge mode & DNS Server

Hi,

 

Can you please confirm that bridge mode will disable the DHCP/NAT features of the first router and let the second router I connect to do it? For example if I use the Giga box as bridge and connect a router to it I should be able to change the DNS server, right? 

 

Thank you

Thanks for your feedback  To your questions:

 

1. yes, it's the same. Here you will find a great overview: https://community.upc.ch/t5/Internet/Internet-Use-your-own-router-bridge-mode/m-p/158183?attachment-...

 

2. yes, the LAN ports on the Giga Box are still active, even if you use Bridge Mode.

 

Best greetings, Cem

@not_naro , You can enter a different DNS server on your own router in bridge mode. Our modem will assign an external IP to your router and your router will do the rest for DHCP and NAT.

Re: Bridge mode & DNS Server

@Daniele_UPC Is bridge mode the same as "Modem mode"? I can't find any setting mentioning Bridge Mode.

Also, will the LAN ports on the Giga Box still work if I put it in bridge mode?
