I have recently signed up to a TelstraClear cable plan; I had a chat with one of their sales assistants in store. The process was smooth and I will have the connection up and running on Tuesday *props TelstraClear* the sales guy wasn't able to answer my next question, however.
My question is in regard to their CPE. I understand it is a cable modem and not a router, correct? I have a spare wireless router lying about so that isn't an issue but does the modem have any kind of firewall and is it possible to disable it?
I have my own firewall solution at home and am wanting the modem to pass all traffic (inbound and outbound) unmolested. Has anyone else been able to achieve this?
