How to put 2Wire i3812v into bridge mode?

I want to put my i3812v into bridge mode to allow for my Airport Extreme full control of the network. 

 

Is there a way to put it into full bridge mode so that I don't have to build two subnets using the DMZPlus workaround?

Yes, that is correct.

You can't.

So DMZPlus from I3812v to my Airport Express.
Airport will dish out IP's on it's subnet and everything else will get an ip from the i3812 subnet allocation.
All STB's are attached to i3812v via coax
i38H is connected to i3812
Airport Express is connected to the i38H

You really need to connect back to the iNid, not the i38h, for items that use Ethernet. That means adding a switch like the Netgear GS108, or GS116 if needing 16 LAN ports.

There shouldn't be anything wrong putting the Airport Extreme in DMZ mode on the back of i38h. i38h doesn't even have an IP address, it simply acts as a Layer 2 device with wireless capabilities.

Your setup suggested is correct tji21.

So anything connected to the i38h will get the IP address range from the i3812v iNID and anything connected to my Airport Extreme will get the IP address range assigned to it.. i.e. i3812v 192.168.1.X Airport Extreme 192.168.2.X Different subnets.
