Arrow My Wi-Fi Modem is Dead

Are you sure your power cables are plugged in and functioning correctly? Did you bump something or accidentally disconnect one when you changed the modem settings.

Do any LED's light up on the modem or is is completely unresponsive?

Perhaps test your power point with another device to ensure you have power to the modem.

Let me know how you go - I can supply instructions regarding a reset of your modem. Before you do that, I would check the power infrastructure/cables to make sure the problem is not external to your modem device. Assuming you have power to the device, I believe you may need to initiate reset back to the default settings but I would need further info to help you.

If you changed it to bridge, it is likely now a wifi receiver, looking to connect to another device and then give you connectivity via an ethernet port.
