How to reset 2Wire 3801HGV Gateway to allow 3rd party router to be main WiFi host with Guest Network
I have the Uverse 2Wire 3801HGV gateway that serves as the host of our WiFi signal as well as the ethernet connection for two periferal devices - a printer and a ATT micro-cell (our phone reception is bad otherwise). I want to add an Apple Time Capsule to the network for two main reasons - the Apple TC is a newer "a/c" router compared to the "g" Gateway AND I have had a Guest Network set-up with an Apple Extreme when I lived elsewhere and really found it useful with relatives, guests, etc. (The Apple TC can also handle the ethernet requirements)
The 3801HGV manual has instructions for putting it into Bridge Mode. Will this work with the ATT system?? Or is it more complex?? The 3801 manual's only caution is, "Confirm with the ISP that the WAN protocol is compatible with bridging mode." Can you advise what steps work to accomplish Bridge mode with this Gateway/3rd Party Router??? Thank you!!
