Re: Sagemcom VDSL in bridge mode? TSI should have these (two) modems in their hands so they know what works and what doesn't. There is no "routed" mode that I can find. But yes, everything is turned off including DHCP. The clock is still stupid but there's nothing left to do about that.
There should be an option at least for business accounts to use a simple bridged modem. This is the last VDSL account I'll ever have in the meantime. If this is reasonably stable for a week straight I'll be happy enough.
