Re: Bridge mode not giving out public IP

I am having the exact same issue with Arris sbg6580 in bridge mode on xfinity. Either my router or my pc when connected directly to (LAN port#1 of) the Arris gateway does not get a public IP address.

Re: Bridge mode not giving out public IP

You have to power cycle it like a regular cable modem after it is put into bridge mode. And only the number 1 ethernet /LAN port will be active.
