I have a modem/router combo connected to my netduma, I have left it in router mode but connected all the devices in house to my netduma.
I was wondering if bridge/modem mode or router mode is best for optimal performance.

does your router combo have a dmz? if so set the ip address of the netduma assigned by your combo to the dmz and create a static rule for it also.

 

leave it in bridge mode!    Would be helpful to know the make and model of your combo too to make sure the answer is correct and your isp! The reason being if you have pppoe authentication!

 

 

Bridge Mode only allows the gateway to function as a modem, whereas Routed Subnet mode allows the gateway to continue to function as a modem and a router. ... Other features (such as Differentiated Services, DHCP, and wireless) can be used in Routed Subnet mode. These features cannot be used inBridge Mode.

because sky does not willingly allow it's customers to access their connection login details you are gonna have to leave it in the default router mode. therefore disable all wifi features on the sky router, find the ip address of the netduma that your router has assigned it and add that to the dmz.
