How to setup 2 archer 1600v in bridge mode?
I have enabled the bridge mode as described above however it results in ip conflict and only one router functions at a time

I'm trying this as its recommended by Google as I have a google mesh network.  However, I keep getting an error that vlan 2 already exists.  How do you disable the pppoe_ptm_2_0_d interface.  When I uncheck IPv4 enabled I also get an error not allowing me to do this.

Can we eero in bridging mode as specified at https://support.eero.com/hc/en-us/articles/207613176-How-do-I-bridge-my-modem-router-combo-device-

and continue to make and receive telephone calls as we do currently now? 

 

I have NBN HFC connection, and my router details are below. My understanding is this modem has only one WAN port and it is connected to NBN box. How would we connect the third-party router to WAN port as explained in the bridging details here? Am i overlooking anything here?

 

Firmware Version:0.1.0 0.9.1 v5006.0 Build 210413 Rel.19548n 

Hardware Version:Archer VR1600v v2.0 00000000

Hi @sp

 

The phone service will not work if you bridge the TPG provided modem/router.

 

You can connect a third party router as an access point if you want to retain the phone service.

Thanks for your time and reply

Could you please let me know how we can connect eero 6 as wireless access point ?

Would eero 6 in wireless access point continue to have all features as used in bridging mode ?

Hi @sp

 

You just need to configure the connection type of the Eero as Dynamic.

If you prefer to use the Eero as your WiFi connection, you may disable the WLAN/WiFi of the TPG provided modem/router.

 

You may contact the manufacturer support of Eero for further guidance on how to turn this to an access point.

 

By the way, you can't use the device as a wireless access point and you need to use an Ethernet cable to connect Eero to the TPG provided device.
