As you appear to be impervious to advice from me and others (albeit being 
off-topic) I will help you no further; good luck with T$'s helldesk...

To restate:

1) It is not a modem; it is a *router* with a built-in firewall[*].  You
    are confusing the NBN with ADSL (the NBN is digital all the way, unless
    you are unlucky enough to have FTTN, in which case you should have a
    different NBN box to handle the VDSL analogue stream).

2) You appear to be the only one with a problem, and you are poking
   around something that you plainly do not understand.

3) Unless you've fscked something up, It Just Works, OK?


(Sorry, Ryan etc, but this is really getting to me.)

Which you can put into "bridge" mode, but that's probably beyond your ken.
