Zyxel Armor G5 first configuration

Good morning, I've bought and now installed a G5 router. I don't understand the first configuration step: why must I've an internet connection? Because I cannot proceed to my configuration. I've a Zyxel modem in bridge mode and then the router so I set PPPoE in the G5 step for my connection during the wizard and I cannot proceed to use my router because the router cannot detect internet connection (and it works as with router like Asus).
Why must I complete the wizard? I don't want it, I want to manually configure my router

    Is the answer from Zyxel_Jerry on the topic 'Armor G1 only cloud???' usefull as background information?
    G5 and G1 are similar devices. Initially setting up the G5 with IPoE and dhcp behind the modem will most likely work.
    After the wizard use you can change the settings via local account login and the menu-item 'settings/internet'.

    Kind regards, Coen

    Unfortunately I don't want/I cannot complete the wizard. All routers are functionally without it by skipping the procedure, why Zyxel not? I want to use my modem in bridge mode and I want to set all parameters that my ISP requires. Actually, it's not possible with Zyxel (neither in the wizard nor after it) and the result is that I cannot complete the wizard making the router unusable.

    Start with wizard less skip, set as router and complete the steps. After first rebook you can go inside as local account and modify as you want. The first time the wizard setup the basic tests.
