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.

Solved! Go to Solution.
Seems the page was changed, here's the information. Keep in mind only the Hitron CGN3 Series Modem can be put in bridge mode. Here's how:
1. Directly connect an Ethernet cable from the modem to the computer.
2. Open a web browser and enter the following address to access the gateway login page: 192.168.0.1.
3. Login with:
4. Toggle the Residential Gateway function box from Enabled to Disabled.
5. Click OK and the gateway will restart
Once the modem is online, plug a device into port one to test the connectivity.
While in bridged mode, only port one will be active on the gateway. Note: If you want to put the modem back into gateway mode, factory reset the modem by pressing the reset button on the back for more than 10 seconds.
Hope that helps
