Do you mean modem only or router only ? Why would you want that as a router...

Maybe via the WAN port...

i think you can change one of the ports from Auto to DHCP, where in theory it should get an IP from a cablemodem.

In the setting, you have a place to select if its VDSL or FTTH.. select FTTH. You should see an option to select the wan type (pppoe/dhcp..) and using the wan port it may be possible that it work..

advanced -> wan mode -> wan ethernet

please don't do this. If the modem belongs to you, sell it and buy a nice router.
