I just bought an Apple AirPort Extreme as I wanted better wi-fi reception and was tired of rebooting my modem after using a lot of bandwidth and it getting slow. The way I set it up was by disabling the wi-fi on my actiontec v1000h modem/router and then I set up the AirPort as a new network in the AirPort Utility software on my MacBook. I see that the AirPort is in bridge mode. Are there any advantages in putting the actiontec modem in bridge mode and setting the AirPort as a new network afterwards or should I keep it the way I have it? what steps would I take to put the actiontec modem in bridge mode? Any input is greatly appreciated!
