Nokia Beacon in Bridge mode?

Would it be possible to use the Nokia Beacon supplied by Starhub in bridge mode so that I can still use my own router and watch FTA channels on the Starhub TV+ box?

If so, what are the steps to do this?

Thank you.

Hi @KWSW83, please be informed that the Nokia Beacon 1 should be connected either wired or wireless to your StarHub TV+ Box to access free-to-air channels.

Hi @Carla_P,

Does it mean that I cannot use the Nokia Beacon in bridge mode to connect to my own router for the StarHub TV+ Box to access free-to-air channels?

When you use a Nokia WiFi Beacon in bridge mode, the StarHub TV+ Box might detect the connection as off-net. Please see this link to see the typical set-up for Nokia Beacon 1 and Linksys Router with the StarHub TV+ Box look like.

So would "might detect the connection as off-net." mean yes or no?
