One may wish to use the TG582n just as a router, and use an external ADSL or VDSL modem. In your author's case, the performance of the TG582n as aan ADSL modem
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 for ADSL - 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!) and not lose my custom configuration.
