How do I put Pace 5268AC Router in passthrough bridge mode?

Hello,

 

I have one of the new Pace 5268AC routers provided by AT&T Uverse and I want to put it in bridge mode so I can utilize my D-Link 3200AC Ultra Wi-Fi Router. There used to be a bridge mode setting in the past modem/router combo units that AT&T provided. However, I am unable to find how/where to put this Pace 5268AC router in bridge mode? 

Does anyone have an answer for this?


Thanks!

Re: I have a Pace 5268AC Router, how to put it in Bridge Mode?

My Pace router no longer has this box available to check:  “Router-Behind-Router Detection”.

Seems like I need to replace the Pace with a new router/modem from AT&T that offers true bridge mode!

Re: I have a Pace 5268AC Router, how to put it in Bridge Mode?

I tried unsuccessfully to setup a TP-Link Archer C4000 with the Pace 5268.  It worked great and then no Internet (wired or wireless).  Off and on for a weekend.  Using the Pace only now and it has issues.  What would be a good AT&T router/modem to get to work with my router?  I'm going to contact AT&T and see about a new router/modem that supports bridge mode.  This Pace seems like a major issue!  Yes, I have fiber to the house and U-Verse TV.  Thank you.

Re: I have a Pace 5268AC Router, how to put it in Bridge Mode?

Your assessment is absolutely correct. You need the :
"Router-Behind-Router Detection" enabled in order for the PACE to find your
router and display it on the 'Settings/Firewall/Applications, Pinholes and
DMZ' location.

Then you can select your router (via MAC address) and enable the function
(at the very bottom) 'Allow all applications (DMZplus mode). -which is a
poor mans way of providing a Bridge Mode. The PACE modem does not have a
clean and pure Bridge Mode function.

I would suggest calling ATT (may the force be with you) and explain your
firmware needs to be reloaded.
