TP-Link 9970 bridge mode


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I am unclear about how bridge mode works. I bought the modem/router in the subject just to have a spare modem. I want it to behave in exactly the same way (if possible, natch) as the BTO modem in that the router has the login info and passes it to the modem. I do not need nor want any more from the 9970, if poss.

Is the above what 'bridge mode' is in this context? All I can find about that mode is a generic definition of allowing two networks to connect and nothing more. I have even looked at other modem/router manuals to see if they would make things more clear.

Thanks in advance.

Yeap select bridge mode and the router you have takes over responsibility for the PPPoE authentication

Have also checked that in bridge mode it works with Sky FTTC service
