Access a Vigor130 in Bridge Mode

 Español

This article describes how to access the management page of a Vigor130 operates in bridge mode. When in bridge mode, a Vigor130 cannot be accessed directly since it acts as a modem; however, if the Internet service is using VLAN tag, we can create a un-tagged virtual WAN interface linked to the LAN of Vigor130 on the Vigor Router and access the management page of Vigor130 from the virtual WAN. The article covers the configuration of Vigor130 and the router.

The Configuration of Vigor130

1. Go to Internet Access >> General Setup, enable VLAN Tag Insertion but leave Tag Value as "0".
