Re: Fioptics ZyXEL bridge mode help
Only the VDSL interface is relevant - you could even disable the other 2 on a VDSL installation.
The problem is that the TV service uses multicast so if you use your own router it has to support multicast proxy which your DLink unit may not do.
PM me if you really want to pursue this - it can be done but is obviously not supported by CB.
This is exactly what I wanted to setup a while back. My ZyXEL looks different from yours though. My interface is totally different. If you figure it out, let me know what you did. Maybe I can apply your technique to my router/modem to get the same results.
I havent really registered this is a anon name so I cant really PM. So just delete the other two? I forgot to even try just looking up the cat5 for the TVs to my dlink.
You could delete them but it won't make any real difference. The one which needs to be in bridge mode is the VDSL interface.
However, unless you can support multicast (e.g. IGMP proxy) on your router you can't put the modem in bridge mode.
The ZyXel itself can do port forwarding - maybe a cheaper solution than getting a multicast capable router which are typically in the $75-$100 area.
