Hi there,

Unfortunately, I know just enough about this stuff to get my network somewhat 
working and be a little dangerous.

I use Bell services in Canada and I have a modem supplied by them which is the 
first touch point in the house.  The ethernet cables then connect to a Time 
Capsule set to DHCP and NET, more ethernet cables through a hub and then to 
another Time Capsule set to Bridge mode.  

When I look at the status table in Airport Utility for the first Time Capsule, 
I get the Double NET error; however, when I switch that Time Capsule to Bridge 
Mode my network stops working.

Both Time Capsules are set to Create a network and share the same SSID 
name/password.  One Time Capsule serves one half of my house, and the other 
serves the second half.

So, do you have any suggestions on how I can fix this?

I can’t figure out if my Bell modem (Home Hub 2000) is in Bridge mode itself, 
although I doubt it.  I can’t find any settings in the firmware to allow me to 
do so.

Thoughts?

Tia,
Jeff
