Archer VR400 / AC1200 Bridge Mode / modem only for use with Deco
I have recently purchased a VR400 to replace my ISP's Bt Home Hub 5 for use with Deco M5 Mesh. I understood that, in order for the mesh to work in 'Router Mode' and get all the functions, I needed to put my existing Modem/Router in 'bridge' mode or 'modem only' mode. Apparently the BT HH5 doesnt support this so I went with the VR400 which supposedly does.
Im using BT internet (VDSL)
Can someone guide me what exactly this means on the VR400 ? Ive set it up following the wizard then disabled wifi but this doesnt seem to be the same thing as mentioned here
The deco is working in 'router' mode but seems that both deco and VR400 are still handing DHCP which doesnt seem right.
Although most connected devices on the are working OK, some things, such as Spotify Connect 'seeing' devices on which to play music (amazon eco / sonos...), are not.
Im no networking expert so be gentle !
