We recently had chorus come and install Fiber (spark is the ISP) and I was wondering about using my EdgeRouter Lite.


Currently, I've got the ISP Provided router (HG659b) running in bridge mode into my ERL, but I'm wondering if there's a way to connect the ERL directly into the chorus ONT box and eliminate the need for two devices. If so what are the settings I'll need to use.

Sure can!  I run exactly that; ONT to EdgeRouter.


I used Mike Murphy's super 'how to' to set it up and get running - and it is awesome.
