I use Qwest for my ISP mainly because they allow home web site hosting.Qwest recently went to VDSL2 technology. I also run an Untangle box. What I had to do was buy a 130.00 VDSL2 modem, put it in bridge mode,then connect it to my Untangle via the RJ-45 Ethernet cable connection. Everything works perfect except I am wondering how to avoid buying these modems,simply to put them in bridge mode. It is like I am buying a very expensive interface changer. I find plenty of "build your own router" tutorials on the net (but using Ethernet technology for your connection to the web). As you know VDSL2 uses the RJ-11 connector (it is a telephone connection). When are we who use VDSL2 technology going to be presented with the "build it yourself" option. Perhaps there is a inexpensive device that I can use besides a full on modem that I waste by putting it in bridge mode.
