Misc router in bridge mode before my netgear router + netgear extender router

Will a Misc router (from my ISP) in bridge mode have any negative negative effect on my network?

That's a very open ended question. 

Overall the network should work fine provided the bridge mode works as it should. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80

Re: Misc router in bridge mode before my netgear router + netgear extender router

If the router in bridge mode does not support wifi 6, but my netgear router and extender does, will they be limited in their wifi 6 capabilities by that bridged router which is first in line?

Re: Misc router in bridge mode before my netgear router + netgear extender router

what router do you have?

what router do you plan on using for a bridge? 

what extender do you have? 

 

why are you setting up a bridge in the first place? it basically disables the wireless on the router as it uses it just for router-----router communication.
