easiest solution would be to get local guy to replace it with the dump onu which costs 1000 bucks now? local guy here told me that they can put the wireless model into bridge mode as well. but from my understanding, the option is not available to user itself. so needs to be done at lco's end.

Okay.. so which option would be best?...

I am trying to setup one archer A6 as the main router and another archer a6 as an AP ( initially I was thinking to create a mesh network between them but it turns out TP-Link routers doesn't support Onemesh in AP mode... some D-Link and Asus AiMesh routers support mesh between routers ( both in router and AP mode) but they are too expensive... My budget is only 5-6K for 2 routers... and i don't want to use standalone access points cos LAN ports aswell)

If it's an optilink brand ont then just delete the wan configuration and it will be in bridge mode by default.

Of course you should know your connection login and configuration details like vlan id etc so you can set it up on your router.

So LCO contacted me now saying that they can't put the router in bridge mode you need to contact excitel customer care.. so I contacted Excitel Customer Care both on chat and call, both times they said... they can't change this setiing and it is disabled for them aswell and some other BS... ... What to do now.. they don't have 750/100RS dumb onu in stock as of now...

I tried deleting WAN settings... it doesn't delete and a small popup window says: " 192.168.1.1 says don't delete this wan connection." I have tried factory reseting the router aswell but no luck...

If anyone knows any way to put this router in bridge mode... do help..
