Modem 4G ( Subnet Mask: <<<< ROUTER / Subnet Mask:, Gateway (modem) (then Netgear orbi for wifi AP) <<< clients

can a client (either iOS or MacOs) use the modem DHCP and totally bypass the router (even though the first node is the router) ?

From my test the answer is no but I might did something wrong, I setup a the modem as geteway with an IP within the modem DHCP and the modem sub.

Perhaps I need to setup a static root?

alternatively can I connect to my router guest DHCP? same sub but different IP range (

  • I'm confused what you are trying to do. Are you trying to connect your Mac or iOS device directly to the modem instead of going through the router? – JBis Oct 30 '18 at 1:29
  • Yes, just want to get an IP from the modem DHCP directly and bypass the router network – Kevin Oct 30 '18 at 9:53
