Using 7300N as modem only

Post by wonderbudgie » Mon Dec 08, 2014 4:04 pm

I have been using my 7300N as a modem and router with no problem but I now want to use it just as a modem and use an Apple Aiport Extreme as my router. Can anyone advise what settings I need to use in the Billion in order to switch off the wifi elements and just have as a modem?

Thanks

You need to change the 'Protocol' to 'Pure Bridge' and then connect your Apple Airport Extreme to the 7300N and setup the WAN method on the Apple Aiport Extreme as PPPOE, and enter your username and password for you ISP within the Apple Aiport Extreme.

You can disable the wireless function under 'Basic >> WLAN' at the top it should have a option called 'Disable WLAN'

Thanks for the reply. Can I just confirm one more thing - do I follow the steps in order - i.e. I don't disable wireless on the 7300n until the Airport Extreme is configured?
