Will bridge mode interfere with modems wifi?

Wanting to use a different router with MAC cloning and would need to use the bridge mode yet would this interfere with everyone using wifi connected to the CC modem? Would i have to set up the second router for wifi to be used off of it and how difficult would that be. Also do i need to worry about any specs with the second router i would use for speed wise considering i get 300MB down and 15MD up hardwired and good connection on wifi aswell?

If you bridge the modem, you will be turning off the routing/wifi capabilities of the gateway. Your new router will then handle wifi. You can set your wireless network to have the same name/password as your current Comcast device so devices that currently use those credentials don't need to be reset. It's pretty basic stuff and should only take a few minutes to set up. The router is the heart of your network, so buy the best one that fits your budget.
