Bridge mode in what context? Do you mean when people connect the WAN port to a LAN port on the same router? If so, it's because it's easier for some people to configure and comprehend. It also keeps all your systems on a single subnet. However, it's hack and not recommended. Avoid it if you have the technical ability to do so.

Please tell us more. What's the better way for a Vonage user to configure a small local network and keep things on the same subnet?

Why do you think you need to keep things on the same subnet?

When the user's complaint is that his/her computers won't talk to one another, and it turns out that they're not on the same subnet, it's one way to solve that issue. What's the better way?

Route the traffic.

For those of us who aren't networking experts, and that includes a good many of the people who come here looking for help, how is that done on a small home network?

Ok, if you have just two or three routers, connect one to the cable/dsl modem, generally this would be the router with the best performance and best feature set, such as QoS.

Then:

- Connect the rest of the router's WAN ports to the LAN ports of the front end router.
- Assign the WAN port of the second tier routers a static address within the LAN subnet of the front end router. The default gateway is the LAN address of the front-end router.
- Then, make sure the second tier router's LAN subnets are different from the front end router's LAN subnet. This is especially important to check if you use two or three of the same router, or router manufacturer, like Linksys. For example, if the front-end router's LAN subnet is 192.168.1.0/24 (255.255.255.0), make the second tier router's LAN subnet's 192.168.2.0/24, 192.168.3.0/24, and so on, depending on how many routers you have.
- Create a static route for each of the second tier LAN subnets on the front end router. Each route would point to the respective WAN ip address of the second tier routers that are serving that subnet (from step two).
- Turn off NAT and the firewall on the second tier routers. It's not needed as the front-end router will serve all those functions.
