I have a few questions regarding bridging the Hitron we received when we upgraded to the Internet 150 plan a couple of years ago. I want to use our 3rd party router (Netgear AC1900 R7000 model) due to its features as a router.
1. When Shaw enables the bridge mode on their end for the Hitron, if we want to use an ethernet connection for our computers, do we connect it to the Hitron or to our 3rd party router?
2. When bridge mode is enabled for the Hitron, would we be able to use powerline network adapters to connect our computers in other rooms?
3. While Shaw is enabling bridging for the Hitron, will we temporarily lose our internet?
And lastly, who could I contact to assist us in bridging the Hitron?
