Re: [Internet] Unlocking Sagemcom 2864

I attached my own router to the Sagemcom as a simple DHCP client. It then creates its own LAN on a different subnet to which I attach all my devices.

I have never used PPPOE on my own router and I get the same speeds as I do with a device connected directly to the Sagemcom. Can anyone explain why the common wisdom seems to be setting up PPPOE on your own router? Does my setup not work for some people/routers/connections?

In DHCP if you want to do port forwarding you have to do it both on both devices - unless you put your router in the DMZ. Issues also arise if you want your router to handle DDNS and VPN instead of the Connection Hub.

I put my router in the DMZ and I haven't had any DDNS or VPN issues. But I guess others might depending on the gear they're using.
