I don't have a complete change log, so I don't know. Time will tell.

You can overcome the port forwarding issue by putting the Sagemcom in bridge mode and putting a real router behind it.

It does work... Simply reset your sagemcom to default, hook up a router to one of its LAN ports, and enter the PPPoE b1 login in the router...

It may have not worked if you had left your b1 login active in the Sagemcom.

Yup. I've been doing it this way since I got my service almost a year ago.

I asked the same question to some people "in the know" and got: It is in the "testing" stage right now and will be released when they are satisfied by that testing. That is all I heard.

The new firmware is supposed to be release 4.0, but you most likely won't have it yet. Wait 2-3 weeks.

That doesnt make sense, the sagemcom firmwares aren't named that way, at least the way they appear in the modem web interface.

Nope. I'm with the Red Company (included in my maintenance fee).

Like you've been told many times, there is no true bridge on the Sagemcom. Reset to default, and plug in a router to any of the Sagemcom's WAN port and it will function in PPPoE Passthru mode...

It's currently got a limit of 35mbps in this mode, but hopefully the new firmware will address that issue.

ummm the SageCom only has 1 wan port, you mean any of the SageCom's LAN port?
why would someone want to put it in overpass / bridge mode? whats wrong with just using it normal like the rest of us canadians?

Because I have a NAS and I want a dedicaded acces from the outside. I need to put one of the two modem in bridge mode for direcly connect the NAS to the internet.

Yeah, I meant LAN ports... thanks for spotting the error.

As for "using it like the rest of us canadians"...

This device is seriously crippled and limited. In the current firmware the port forwarding doesn't even work... I won't even get into Sync No Surf bug.

That wouldn't be an issue for the OP as he lives in L'Orignal, nothing faster than 15/1 and likely won't be anything faster for a while.

If it's 15/1, then I'd be buying a cheap ADSL2+ modem and be off to the races and shove the Bell monstrosity in the closet.

From what I've read the Sagemcom hardware isn't bad. It's just that Bell loads an amazingly shitty firmware that completely cripples the device.

I'm on the Fibe 25 service so the hobbled bridged mode works fine for me.

True, hardware is most likely fine, as it always had good sync for me. But even Rogers puts a bridge mode function in their all in one cablemodem/router gizmos, so if you want you can set it to bridge and bypass the garbage.

Bell hasn't allowed a proper bridge mode since the SpeedStream modems. 2Wire, Cellpipe & Sagemcom don't have a proper bridge mode and a way to disable the modem's routing features.
