Use Own Router with Fido Internet?

Fido's new internet service comes with a built-in WiFi Modem. I would like to know if Fido's WiFi modem can be setup to bypass the built-in WiFi feature and a separate router be used instead? That is, I currently have a high-end Linksys (Cisco) router and want to use with it with Fido Internet, is this possible? I want to use my own router with the Fido modem.

Hey Nick67!

 

So, yes, it is possible! You would just need to put the gateway into Bridge mode. Click here for more info.
