I am using a Pace 5268AC Fusion DSL modem in bridge mode, with my own wireless NAT router. As part of this I have disabled the Pace's wifi. However, I discovered that if the modem is power cycled, it remains in bridge mode but the wireless is re-enabled. I am forced to reset the modem, and then disable wifi and reset it to bridge mode. (This is difficult because I have to hardwire to the modem during this process, which is awkward where I have it installed.)
I reported this in December 2015 and was shipped a new modem. However, that modem had the same issue, and this was confirmed as a bug in the firmware.
I wanted to find out what are the prospects for a firmware update to fix this issue? Alternatively, is there another Fusion DSL modem that I can use, preferably one without the routing/wifi functions?
