A bit of a newbie here. Moving to a house without fiber connection and I want to take my current Unifi-setup with me. I tried setting up the RUTX09 in bridge mode (entered the USG MAC address in the RUT-configuration as I've read about in multiple sources) but the connection I got out of the Unifi-system was not usable. Sometimes websites would loud, sometimes not. I couldn't do a proper speed test. After hours of troubleshooting I put the RUTX09 in NAT mode and everything worked just fine.

What could I have done wrong in this setup and why is NAT working so well? Now I have a possible double NAT situation on my hand but the kids can watch Netflix all they want, and in the end maybe that is the most important thing?

Bridge and Passthrough mode are straight forward settings. Just to make sure, are you setting it up with your WAN Unifi MAC address?

Can you do a tracert to any internet IP address and share results?
