We set a router to bridge mode when it's a combo modem and router and want to disable the router which also disables the WiFi in that box.
I'm going to answer no as this is an easy.... no.
I have a Comcast modem/ router in one level of my condo (where the Comcast cable access is located) that works well with Apple mobile devices on that level. The other (upper) level has limited coverage which results in random drop-outs. Another issue appears to be a strong WiFi signal in an adjacent condo which seems to mask the weaker one I am trying to connect to on the upper level.
I am thinking of running an Ethernet cable between the two levels in the condo, and connecting one of the LAN Ethernet ports on the Comcast router to the WAN input of another router running in bridge mode. From this second router I plan to run both Ethernet LAN connections to fixed Mac computers on the upper level, as well as use the WiFi capability of the second router to create a connection to mobile devices on the upper level. I do have a spare router- it's an Apple AirPort Extreme.
Would this network configuration work? I anticipate using the second router (in bridge mode) as a switch for LAN connections as well as a WiFi connection to mobile devices. Any advice most appreciated. Thanks.
