hi

 

I have followed instructions here to bridge the TP Link 1600v;

https://community.tpg.com.au/t5/Modems-and-Devices/How-to-turn-on-bridge-mode-on-the-TP-Link-1600v/t...

 

and have turned off its wifi and pluged in a Nest wifi.

 

However, the Nest wifi does not get a public IP address - it gets 192.168.1.100 which means the router functionality of the modem is still on.

 

How do I turn off the router features of the TP Link?

 

thanks
