Can I set up the router as a bridge so that it works like I am connecting to my main router directly?
Yes, GL.iNet routers work in router mode by default, which will create a separated subnet for you. However, you can change its network mode so that it can behave like an extender without DHCP.
- Access the web Admin Panel via 192.168.8.1
- Go to MORE SETTINGS -> Network Mode.
Change the network mode to Access Point, Extender or WDS.
