 So what is the bridge mod doing other then killing the wireless in the unit?
 If I kill the wireless in the Hitron and using my own E2500 router as the Hitron unit has no range do you have to put in bridged mode?
 Bridge mode means that only the cable modem functions work --- all other extraneous functions like router, wireless, DHCP, LAN switch, etc. are disabled.
 Yes -- in bridge mode.
