Does AmpliFi support bridge mode?


Yes, AmpliFi supports bridge mode. Bridge mode is a useful feature that can help grow your network and/or separate networks. Bridge mode allows you to use multiple routers on the same network by placing one of the routers in bridge mode and connecting it to a port on the other router.

Here are a few of the most common applications for bridge mode:

  • Connect two routers/AmpliFi to share network resources.
  • Use AmpliFi as an additional access point on an existing network.
  • Use AmpliFi with a fiber service.

To set up bridge mode, perform these steps:

1. Open the AmpliFi app.

2. Tap the picture of the AmpliFi router.

3. Tap Internet.

4. Toggle on Bridge Mode to enable it.

5. Save and confirm bridge mode by selecting the check mark in the upper right hand corner of the page.

6. AmpliFi will restart and apply the updated settings.

    This page should mention limitations of bridge mode as no guest mode, no per IP control etc.

    Hello Amplifi Team,

    I'm really happy with my Amplifi HD.
    I use it in bridge mode but unfortunately guest mode isn't working in this mode.
    So is there a possibility to activate guest mode while Amplifi HD is in bridge mode or will it be available in a future update release?

    Thank you very much.

    kind regards

    Came across one of these at a customer site.  Since they have a tiny AD domain on an Essentials server (and would if using a SAMBA server on a NAS), wireless users need a manual DNS and DNS suffix to access the server resources, but since they are wireless, their primary DNS server will not be available when they are travelling, impacting performance.

    Option is to put it into bridge mode, but having some Advanced settings to set things like Domain and DNS server would be nice because they could still use the guest mode.  It's a great product for a very small business (8 static users, 10 or so field users).

    That said, it'd be a great product for home and it has a nice form factor, but that's all I think it's good for at the moment.
