Bridge Hiltron CGN3U?

  • Hello,

    I just switched over my ISP to another provider. The new ISP sent me a Hitron CGN3U modem/router for free. Since I'm using Pfsense as a router I tried to put the Hitron into bridge mode. If set to bridge I lose my internet and all access to logging into pfsense.

    For now I have left the Hitron as is and just plugged my pfsense to one of the ports. This gives me internet but an WAN IP of
    I assume this is not good but it works for now.

    I have tried rebooting pfsense after bridging the Hitron and it does come up with a WAN IP of my ISP but no internet. It all worked fine with my old modem which was a Motorola SB6141. Its only a modem. No router built in.

    Anyone know what could be causing this?
