Connecting a bridge

Hey all, I’m trying to connect a bridge. I have an Ethernet plugged into the 1st port on the back of the router. The light is for port 1 is amber. Is it possible to run a bridge in this manner?

Re: Connecting a bridge

The router is a netgear R6400. I believe the bridge is a umbiquity

What do you mean by "bridge". That is a term that means different things in different contexts.

 

One version of Bridge Mode is to connect the R6400 wirelessly to another router. Is that what you are doing? If so, what is the router at the other end?

 

What is this thing – make and  model – "plugged into the 1st port on the back of the router"? First from which end? The Internet Port or the LAN port?

 

If it is a LAN port, then amber = 100 Mbps on the LAN.
