I'm using a RUTX11 in bridge mode. Seems to work.

However, the RUTX11 itself cannot resolve any hostnames and does not seem to have internet access for things like NTP time updates. How to workarround this?

In Bridge mode, the router assigns its WAN IP address to another device. It is used instead of Network Address Translation (NAT) in order to make the router "transparent" in the communication process. Bridge mode disables most of router features and simply gives a single specified device its WAN IP address. The NTP server also becomes unavailable, so time is not updated.
