One may wish to use the TG582n just as a router, and use an external ADSL modem. In your author's case, the performance of the TG582n as
was found to be very poor (3.2km from the exchange, 8km from a very powerful Medium Wave transmitter) and a different modem was much better (part of
a modem/router which can't do IPv6...).
One could use the configuration wizard to setup the TG582n for FTTC, but some of the settings aren't appropriate - and my intention is
to make it easy to switch back to the internal modem (although since doing this, I've only switched back once!).
=Sacrifice an Ethernet port=
:eth ifattach intf=eth_WAN
:eth ifconfig intf=eth_WAN wan=enabled priotag=disable
=Switch PPP over to use this new interface=
One can't '''ppp ifconfig''' an interface which is administratively up, so one has to bring it down first
:ppp ifdetach intf=Internet
:ppp ifconfig intf=Internet dest=eth_WAN mru=1492
Then bring PPP back up:
