Bridge Mode on Telus Home

Recently upgraded to Telus 150. Despite assurances from Telus that the Actiontec T3200M could be Bridged - it can't - still running NAT and serving private IPs via DHCP. Customer service says they no longer provide bridge-capable devices to home accounts.

I acquired the Zxcel VMG4325-B10A VDSL2 router.

At first nothing I did would sync both circuits or connect to internet. After matching the IGMP settings from the Telus router I now have DSL1 working in bridge mode without NAT or DHCP. My own router can now pull the IP address directly from ISP.

Downside is I am not getting full speed without the 2nd circuit. I know the ISP has RFC 1483 via DHCP which is a bridging mode. Unsure if Zyxel has this, or if there is something else needed to get 2nd DSL circuit up and running.

    Hmmm. Things just got interesting. According to the T3200M gui the bridge port is #1. This should indicate that it will not have services running - NAT DHCP etc on that port once in bridge mode. IT appears to work opposite. That port is still serving DHCP. I am pulling a public IP through port 4 now. No need to swap if this stays working.
