You can use your Netgear router in bridge mode

your Netgear router likely does not have a fiber port. you cannot connect it to the airtel incoming line without a device in between. this is why bridge mode is the only option you have.

yeah. bridge model lets you connect your own router to that device and configure the connection on that router instead of airtel's own device. airtel does allow that. contact customer support. tell them to enable bridge mode on your connection and send a technician to your place to configure your router.

as mentioned above. you would likely need airtel to enable bridge connection on your connection at their end first.

that's how it works yes. you setup your connection pppoe thingy on the Netgear router and all traffic is handled by it then.

i am a bit confused. airtel gave you the Syrotech device and a separate Dasan router? they usually give a single combo device.

third party onu might not work as airtel might be restricting it to their own devices. some isps do let them work by copying the serial number from the device provided by them to your own device. easier would be get airtel to enable bridge mode and use their own device as onu and setup the connection on your own router. with bridge mode, airtel's router would essentially work as a dumb onu.
