I think a big bunch of those modems were faulty from the factory. Everyone keeps saying, 'Put it in bridge mode' then put anouther wifi router behind it. Thats great, but how does this network noob do that? Bearing in mind that once its in bridge mode, I can't get net access till I have my wifi router set up. How are the modem and router connected?
