I have decided to purchase a Google nest wifi router but having issues with double NAT as my TalkTalk hub is acting as a router. is there a way to turn this into bridge mode?
I have also purchased another router which does have bridge mode enabled however when I set this, the Google net wifi has no internet connection
Really appreciate any support the community can provide me as am sure that there are many out there who have this working

If you put a router that is connected directly to the broadband line into bridge mode, you will, as you have found out, have no internet access. This is because it is no longer a router & you need a router to route IP packets from your local IP network out to the public or WAN IP address of the router & on to the internet.
No current router supports modem mode or bridge mode.
I am not employed by TalkTalk, I'm just a customer. If my post has fixed the issue, please set Accept as Solution from the 3 dot menu.
