Setting your modem to Bridge Mode will cause your modem to stop acting as a Wireless Modem and router, and instead it will act simply as a pass through modem. This will allow you to use your own third party wireless device if you prefer. Once converted into Bridge Mode, you will not be able to utilize the wireless features of the Shaw Modem, and you will only be able to use as many ethernet ports on the back of the modem as you have IP's registered to your device (typically this means you will only be able to use one or two ethernet ports simultaneously).
