Can a Pace 5268AC be Bridged

Does anyone know how to set up one of the Pace 5268AC units is bridge mode? It is currently handing out our static public ip's via DHCP to the device connected. We do not want to do that. We want to assign a static IP to our router and attach the router to the Pace.

@TXShelbyman   No Uverse RGs can truly be bridged, router behind the RG is best that can be done. 

 

This is info from Computer Joe's setup for 2wire/Pace RGs:

 

This is what I did to use an "internal" router. I set my "internal" router to use DHCP for the WAN address, plugged it's WAN port in to the RG, reboot the "internal" router, let the RG assign a local address to the "internal" router and then set that address to the DMZ in the RG's management interface. When I go to the "internal" router's management interface it shows as having the same WAN, gateway, and DNS addresses that the RG uses.


I set the "internal" router to assign addresses to "my" side of the network in a different IP range than what the RG uses (192.168.2.* instead of 192.168.1.*) but using the same subnet mask (255.255.255.0). My internet works fine with no interuptions and local network tasks (back ups, streaming, etc.) work as expected.

 

I can also still access the RG from "my" side of the network when I need to without having to change any network settings or swap any cables. Leave DHCP running on the RG. You do not need to disable the firewall in the RG as the DMZ will open a pinhole through it to the address you pick (your internal router). If you have existing wireless on your router that your satisfied with and want to keep, just make sure to turn off the wireless in the RG.


As for the STBs they should be run straight out of the RG with CAT5 or RG6 Coax.

 

Good luck 😉
