Apple extreme and Openreach modem??

First Timer

Hi everyone

I have got the new super hub. Nothing against it, fast enough speeds if you are close.  Upper bedroom not so good. So, I would like to go back to using my apple extreme and express setup. Gives better coverage over the entire house. 

I connected the Openreach modem back up and connected the extreme as per normal. Using airport utility you can get a green light on the router and in the utility but amber on the internet connection. I have tried using the dns addresses from the original router but nothing seems to work. Any ideas.

What mode is the openreach modem set to:


  • bridge_ip
  • router


Openreach modem should default to bridge_ip, and pass a Public IP adddress to you extreme which should get an address via DHCP on its WAN port. 


maybe reset the modem ?  it should default back to modem mode.
