Re: [Internet] Unable to bridge new Frontier modems?

The reality seems to be that DSL providers love to claim they have "business class service" which in reality is just residential service at a higher cost.

I don't understand why they simply don't carry modems already set in bridge mode when they are flashed as they once did for those "business class customers".

Also in PA and we run into the same thing with Verizon. Some of the older modems that were factory programmed as bridge only devices are getting erratic. So Verizon sends someone out and claims the modem is bad. Understandable because some of these have been in service a long time. Then we get a call that the Verizon guy is on site with a modem set in router mode but he isn't allowed to configure it. Each time Verizon claims they never heard of a bridged only modem even though the one they are replacing is a bridge only device.
