Re: New Modem Out

Wait can this modem act like a modem and allow a separate router to do all the routing work? Is there a bridging function?

While the new series of XFINITY Wireless Gateways (»customer.comcast.com/help-and-su···compare/) still allow their use in bridge mode ("If you would like to use your existing router instead of the routing functionality on your Wireless Gateway, the Bridge Mode on the Wireless Gateway will need to be enabled." See: »media2.comcast.net/anon.comcasto···0811.pdf), I don't know if this would be possible/allowed with an XG5 box.

I'm not talking about the XG5. I'm talking about the SBG6782 in the thread. That's why I said "modem" and not "XG5"

Oh OK, sorry. Then, like the Moto SBG6580 gateway modem, I think it should be able to be placed in Bridge Mode also.

Pretty cool, but which one of the four Ethernet ports would be used as the bridge port? Will the MoCA connection also act like a bridge port so a MoCA enabled FiOS router would be able to use it on it's WAN Coax port?
