Re: No bridge mode for 'Sagemcom' effective November 19th ???

said by vikingisson:

Are they talking about multiple sessions with the same credentials? That's fine. But what's this Bridge Mode, I've never seen that on the Sagemcom. The default is a Bell signup session and will treat a PPPoE session on the LAN side as a "PPPoE passthrough" but there's still technically two routable sessions. Configuring the modem with a test@test account creates a non routable session. But no where did I see a true Bridge Mode config.

There's no real option.

exactly. So what is actually the story? I'm not really concerned because I've already abandoned the VDSL/Sagemcom I had until a real modem is offered.

It caught my eye because I thought maybe they wanted to force you to use it as the primary router and disable the passthrough mode.

No story... Sagemcom commes with it's own userID/password, so you don't change that and just put your info in your own router... I don't understand the confusion here.

That default userID/password is a PPPoE session and is routable, that's why. There's only a small chance that passthrough mode is being killed but some of us never liked that Bell back door and would prefer a real Bridge. Title might be misleading so I'm only asking for clarity.

Multiple PPPOE sessions of the same ID... Not multiple logins...
