Re: How to put Sagemcom 2864 in bridge mode?
said by spiffhiggins :You would be right, it's not true bridge Mode. It's just a Kludge to get your router to establish the PPPOE handshake. The Sagemcom Gateway has the advanced settings that would allow you to actually bridge it locked away via password and you can't get that password. ALL BELL GATEWAYS have the bridge mode locked behind a password. Believe me, I have tried every possible avenue to get the passwords and no one will cough them up.
I have a Sagemcom modem with my Fibe 25 and yes, when I reset the modem to factory defaults and configured the PPPoE ony my router it works HOWEVER I only get half the speed. Whereas the Sagemcom will do 25 down / 7 up natively, with my router behind it I only get 14 down / 4 up. I don't think it's a true bridge mode. I'm looking for an older Cellpipe modem to compare.
According to Bell they lock the advanced settings away because if they don't people will futz with it and it generates too many support calls. That's what I was told by them anyway.
