How do I set my modem to bridge mode?

Known as bridge mode, this consists of using the GO modem as a bridge between the internet connection and your router or firewall, so that the internet connection is activated directly on your router or firewall.

So all you need to do to activate your internet connection directly on your router or firewall is to set your modem to bridge mode. To do so, follow these steps, but before doing so, confirm your modem’s model.

  6. Click on the toggle switch next to the ‘Internet Access’ card. Once you click on it, it switches to ‘OFF’, and the Internet connection will get disconnected from the modem.
  7. Connect your third party equipment (for example, router or firewall) to the modem’s LAN (yellow) port, and establish the Internet connection on your third party equipment.
