Scenario: You would like to connect and setup your Shaw WiFi modem with a third party networking device such as a router (this configuration is called "Bridged Mode").
To update your WiFi modem to a Bridge mode, you will need to contact us to turn bridge mode “on”. If you have already done so:
- Connect the coax cable (TV cable) from a wall outlet to the Cable In connection on your modem.
- Connect the modem to a wall outlet using the power cable.
- Connect your third-party router (or similar device) by connecting the Ethernet cable from one of the ports on the back of the Shaw modem to the Internet port on your third-party router or other device).
- With your modem online and connected to your router, follow the setup and connection process for your third-party device.
