Got to Main TG582N Page

It may be possible to configure the router so that it acts as a bridge and not a router.

This information is from a customer, and is not supported by AAISP, we would only suggest you use this if you're sure you know what you're doing!

We would recommend a ZyXEL P660-D1 or a Dlink if you are looking for a bridge device, this are available to purchase from Sales.

We cannot support this if you break it, sorry.

Notes from the customer:

It doesn't seem possible to make it work without two internet connections being configured, even though 'Internet2' is disconnected. I removed it's config and restored, and the ethernet ports didn't want to come up!

I essentially took a config I found for the BE 'bebox' and merged sections with the default config that come with the router. I am sure it could be made cleaner, and it could be possible to rid the 'Internet2' and still have it work.

Config file: File:AA TG582n Bridge config.ini.zip.zip

Another Customer entry:

To put the router into proper bridge mode, telnet in and enter these commands

ppp relay flush
ppp flush
eth flush
atm flush
atm phonebook flush
saveall
atm phonebook add name=BrPPPoE_ph addr=0.38
atm ifadd intf=BrPPPoE_atm
atm ifconfig intf=BrPPPoE_atm dest=BrPPPoE_ph encaps=vcmux ulp=mac
atm ifattach intf=BrPPPoE_atm
eth bridge ifadd intf=BrPPPoE_br
eth bridge ifconfig intf=BrPPPoE_br dest=BrPPPoE_atm
eth bridge ifattach intf=BrPPPoE_br
service system modify name=DHCP-S state=disabled
wireless radio state=disabled
saveall

IPV6 not tested with the above setup although, in theory, it should work as all the above is, is a clean bridging setup. (it does work, but not immediately it seems)

I have recently migrated from BE and their router had a 'half-bridge' mode where the router would only use the dhcp allocated WAN IP address and route the allocated subnet onwards. I am investigating this setup on the TG582N. Main advantage is that you can then still easily access the router.
