UPDATE: Recent Fibr ONUs have their passwords unrevealed or changed due to 'security concerns'. Thus, newer Fiberhome white ONUs with dualband WiFi have reportedly hashed passwords instead of the usual 1234567890.

In PLDT's Fibr systems, Bridge Mode can be achieved in 3 ways.

  • Call PLDT at 101-FIBR to request ONU update. (Earlier done before 2014)
  • Direct from the ONU configuration.
  • PLDT hotline, same as above, (Needed for 2017 Fiberhome dualband WiFi ONUs, as ONU passwords are reportedly forbidden to be shared to consumers)

Differences between Router ModeEdit

  • A single port will serve unmodified internet traffic, whereas traffic under Router Mode will undergo Network Address Translation.
  • If multiple ports are enabled in Bridge Mode, the first connection to be established will get the connection. All other connections will be ignored.
  • Instead of relying on the ONU for routing, the endpoint connection will take the responsibility for connection propagation. This is where external routers come into play.

How to enable Bridge Mode in PLDT Fibr ONUsEdit

  • Log in to your ONU (usually
  • Click WAN setup.
  • From Routed, change selection to Bridge.
  • Disable NAT (Network Address Translation)
  • Disable WiFi.
  • Leave only Port 1 of the LAN connection checked.
  • In LAN tab or DHCP tab, Disable DHCP.
  • Save settings and reboot.

Notes Edit

  • You cannot access the ONU in bridged mode under normal circumstances. You need any of these 3 options

A. Wifi Router that can do IP alias/Route modem IP(Mikrotik, Tomato, DD-WRT, openwrt etc)

B. Set a static IP on your WAN interface on the Wifi Router ex.

C. Connect your PC/laptop directly to lan port 1 of the ONU

Set a static IP on your network adapter same as B.

While using option B or C, you cannot access the internet temporarily.

Option A allows you access to the ONU(in bridged mode) even while using the internet connection.

  • You cannot use bridged mode and use the ONU's Wifi at the same time.

Bridged mode is not for you don't bother.

  • Bridged mode will not speed up your internet connection, mow your lawn for you, water your plants, do magic, reduce your latency in games or win you that chicken dinner.

Bridged mode is not for you don't bother.

  • PLDT is discouraging residential(and sometimes biz) users from using bridged mode for 'Security Reasons'.

An alternative is DMZ mode.
