Plume supports both Router Only and Auto mode. We recommend that you set your Plume's networking mode to 'Auto Mode'. This will allow Plume to select the best mode for your setup.
In Router Only mode, a secure firewall is setup between your Plume system and the outside network.
In Auto mode, the Plume system will select the setup custom tailored for your home. Plume is set on Bridge mode when you connect your first Plume Pod to an existing router. This will allow all your WiFi and existing wired connections to see each other. Plume is set up in Router mode when your first Plume Pod is connected directly to the modem, which establishes a secure firewall to prevent outside attacks into your home.
