The most unreliable Internet I have ever used. That being said It can be used as a Modem, so how would I go along for Bridging this to a Modem mode and pairing it with a reliable router?

You can follow this Guide for step by step setup. Providing you have the models that have bridging enabled. The actiontec themselves are alright, but the wireless range is hit and miss. The new T3200 that was just released is AC, beaming forming, dual band and more. 

 

Make sure you disable the Wifi on your old actiontec. If you ever need to connect to it, you will require a hardwired connection to make changes. (Otherwise it's set it and forget it). 

 

Port 1 is the bridge port on the actiontec.

What type of service do you have for Internet, copper or fiber? Which model are you referring to?
