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.
