DIR-867 Bridge config help, please
« on: December 30, 2018, 12:45:28 PM »

Hello,

I have a double NAT notice on my XboxOne. The website says to turn my router into a bridge. Cool. But, I am struggling to do this.

My setup is Xfinity brand new modem and wifi tower thingy. My DLink is wired directly to that piece of equipment. There an Xbox in a separate room that wifi's into the network through the Dlink. This is the problem piece with double NAT. My kid cannot use party chat on the Xbox games with his friends. So, we are talking super tragic conditions here. 

Please, would you walk me through this process to turn the DIR-867 into a bridge.

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

This model router doesn't support bridge mode...

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?
  • If the ISP modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems: Link>Double NAT and How NAT Works. Call the ISP and ask to see if the ISP modem can be bridged. To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged. If the modem can't be bridged then see if the modem has a DMZ option and input the IP address the router gets from the modem and put that into the modems DMZ. Also check the routers DHCP IP address maybe conflicting with the ISP modems IP address of 192.168.0.1. Check to see if this is the same on the ISP modem, and if modem can't be bridged, change the DIR router to 192.168.1.1 or .0.254.
    Example of a D-Link router configured for PPPoE with ISP Modem bridged: PPPoE Configuration on a Router


You can't do anything with the modem, you can make the DIR router in to a wireless only AP:
