Set Up the Router in Bridge Mode
You can use your router in bridge mode to connect multiple devices wirelessly at the
faster 802.11ac speed. You need two routers: one set up as a router and the other set
up as a bridge.
Installing your router as a bridge offers the following benefits:
•Take advantage of gigabit WiFi speeds on current devices
•Use Gigabit WiFi for applications like video and gaming.
•Connect multiple devices like NAS, Smart TV, Blu-ray player, and game consoles at
gigabit WiFi speeds using a WiFi link.
•Avoid the need for separate WiFi adapters for each device.
For example, you can install the first router in a room like a home office where your
Internet connection is located, then set up the second router in bridge mode. Place the
router in bridge mode in a different room with your home entertainment center. Cable
the router in bridge mode to your Smart TV, DVR, game console or Blu-ray player, and
use its 802.11ac WiFi connection to the first router.
