Configure the Modem Router as a DSL Modem Only
By default, the modem router functions both as a modem and a router. You can change the
operation mode to a mode in which the modem router functions as a DSL modem only with
the routing, firewall, wireless support, and traffic meter features disabled.
A typical use of such a mode is when the modem router is used for DSL connectivity only
behind a router, firewall, or security device manager that provides routing, firewall, wireless
support, and traffic meter features.
