sbiddle: Most routers don't have a bridge mode setting. The easiest thing is to simply disable DHCP and plug into the LAN port. Without knowing the model however it's not possible to really say much more.



Is there any real issue with this?

We can't help you unless you tell us what kind of routers you have.

The OP doesn't seem to know where to find/how to configure DHCP. Isn't this an issue big enough? If things are not correctly configured then it's a hard reset on the router, back to step one.

Knowing the exact model makes it a lot easier to know if it can be put in bridge mode, or if other configurations are needed.

Hold on, the statement was this

"Most routers don't have a bridge mode setting. The easiest thing is to simply disable DHCP and plug into the LAN port."

my question was this

"Is there any real issue with this?"

"The OP doesn't seem to know where to find/how to configure DHCP. Isn't this an issue big enough? If things are not correctly configured then it's a hard reset on the router, back to step one. "

I can get the internet by turning it off. Is there any issue with this?

Nope, this is exactly what you want.
Just turn off DHCP, make sure you have a wifi password, then plug it back into the ethernet port in the wall and everything should work perfectly.
