Is the Vodafone supplied HG659 capable of bridging mode? If so, how do you enable it?

 

 

 

Thanks for any help.  :)

Can you elaborate on what you are trying to achieve? I have read a variety of contexts described as "bridging" in the recent past.

 

 

If you are referring to the WAN configuration then yes you can edit the relevant profile for VDSL/UFB (you cannot run ADSL in bridge mode) and change the Connection Type from "IP routing" to "Bridged" as below.

 

 

 

 

There is also a guide here: https://community.vodafone.co.nz/t5/Modems-Wi-Fi/Using-the-HG659-in-Bridge-Mode/td-p/145027

Just want to use it as a switch, as well as extending wifi.

 

 

 

I don't see those settings at all on my Internet Settings page??

 

This is what I see:

OK so you are trying to extend your LAN in which case ignore my previous post.

 

 

On the HG659 web admin choose Home Network on the top menu then 'LAN interface' down the left hand side menu.

 

On that page you need to untick "DHCP server" and change its IP address to be on the same range as your primary router. Click on 'Save' and then run a cable from one of the LAN ports of your primary router to one of the LAN ports of your HG659.
