How can I add my own router and firewall?

I'd like to add my own router and firewall. What steps will I need to take? I understand I can't remove my current AT&T router.

AT&T gateways don't support a true bridge mode, instead relying on IP Passthrough or DMZ. You can see a discussion of this In this thread.

Hey @Coliv00,

 

We are here to help with your inquiry. If you decide to use a third-party router there a two things you will need to do.

  1. Research router compatibility to find the right fit.
  2. Look into IP Passthrough and DMZ+.
    • There are two different types modes. Depending on the AT&T router. You will need to select the appropriate mode to setup your third-party router.

Let us know if this helps.

Thanks. I plan to use the Unifi USG Pro to replace my current router. Any additional information would be appreciated.

Works fine but I would request new information on the process. Just to see if there are any updates to the process. There may be new equipment to consider.
