enabling Bridge mode on comcast gateway still allow Xfinity Home security service to work?

Hello, my comcast gateway keeps dropping wifi and i just dont like the interface compared to my Asus Router.  If I enable Bridge mode on the comcast Modem, will my Xfinity Home security service still work? 

 

 

I might have other questions depending on the answer, thanks for your help.

No it won’t, you will need a security installed by a technician.

What do you mean I will need a security installed by a technician?  I already have Home Security installed, i just want to make my router the default and the comcast gateway secondary.  Do you mean, they have to come out and install additional equipment?

Yes, a Netgear security router would need to be added.
