I've just switched ISPs from a local cable provider to AT&T fiber. I used the old ISP's modem and my two LinkSys Atlas routers. The new equipment includes a HUMAX BGW320-500 combined modem and router. I'm very disappointed with the Wi-Fi performance of the new equipment. In part of my house the Wi-Fi signal strength is reported as "weak." I'd like to turn off the Wi-Fi from the new router and deploy the LinkSys units to supply Wi-Fi.

I'm not sure how to make this happen. I haven't found much LinkSys documentation on how to extend a network. I've found how to turn off Wi-Fi on the AT&T device. I'm concerned about avoiding a "dual NAT" configuration.

Thanks for any advice.

Thanks! That looks like exactly what I need.

It had so long since I needed to deal with this sort of thing that I'd lost track of the term "bridge mode."
