Setting the Ubee wireless modem to Bridge/Router mode

Router mode

By default, the modem is set to Router mode. This means that the public IP (IP address assigned by ISP) is taken by the modem. You will usually need to have your modem set up on Router mode when your devices will be connecting to the Modem and no routers will be involved.
