Using a bridge between my BGW210 700 and an aftermarket router

In an effort to beef up the security of my home wifi network I have purchased an Omninet bridge and an Amplify HD wifi router. The bridge is to serve as a layer of security between the modem (the BGW210) and my router. The problem is the only broadband jack in the router from Att is for the phone line coming from the wall and connecting me to the internet. Is there another jack I can use? Maybe run the phone line from the wall into the bridge? I'm not tech savvy, so I have no idea how to proceed, so any feedback would be most appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Dave_Quixote, we'd be happy to help you with your router setup.


If you're able to, try your first suggestion of running the line from the wall into the bridge, and let us know how it went.


We'll be here if you need further assistance!
