Currently running an older modem and we just re-signed our contract. One of the things offered that we turned down was the $25/month XFi Advantage. Partly because we've only hit the data cap once after I built a new PC and downloaded a few hundred GB of games again and partly because I already use Google WiFi mesh so I didn't need its aWiFi optimization and pods etc. Just wondering though if it's possible to sign up for the package to get the unlimited data for $25 then put the router in bridge mode still and use it with the Google pucks. I'm guessing no since it would defeat the purpose of using their stuff and them wanting you to buy the pods but figured I'd ask anyway. We'll be getting an XB6 modem either way since we upgraded from 500 to 1Gig service speed.
Hello. We're also very interested in finding out the answer to this- let me know if you hear anything outside this group please.
We have an Orbi modem because we'd experienced problems with our Comcast modems. So unfortunately we have xFi but we can't seem to use its features like BedTime mode and controlling device access since it says our Gateway is in Bridge mode.
We can run in Bridge Mode if we have our own router.
