So I setup a second modem in bridge mode to extend the WiFi and to act as a switch for my desktop, rasberry pi, and Xbox one. When the bridged modem is connected the Xbox one won't connect to the internet along with chrome on some of the other devices on the network where as it will work fine on other devices.

Anyone know what could be causing this?

Uhm - you need to provide more details...

 

What hardware are you using, how is it configured etc.

Don't use bridgemode for this. disable all dns and dhcp features. plugin using the LAN rather than WAN ports.

That may have fixed it. Went through and deleted some connection settings found 1 dchp setting that was still enabled.
At first I thought it was a device issue as some devices worked fine others had issues no matter what modem they were connected too.
Xbox is working with both modems connected and turned on now where as before it would only work with the primary modem connected to the internet. Just have to confirm that the device with chrome works now.
