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
haven' t needed to switch back!).
=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=
:ppp ifdetach intf=Internet
Select ''ifconfig'' and enter ''Internet'' as ''intf''. Change ''dest'' to ''eth_WAN'' and then ''OK'' out of the menu.
Then bring PPP up:
:ppp ifattach intf=Internet
One can simply switch the ''dest'' field between ''atm_Internet'' and ''eth_WAN'' to change between internal and external modem.
=Get the front panel LEDs working correctly=
=Connect the external modem=
Disconnect the TG582n from the phone line, connect an Ethernet cable from port 4 on the
TG482n to ones external modem, connect the external modem
to the phone line, and one should be back online.
[ One would need a PPPoE to PPPoA bridge running on the external modem to get a 1500 octet MRU/MTU with PPPoE. ]
