I've got an Origo ASR-8400 - used to use it in half-bridge mode but as I
have a /30 I am now using it in bridge mode.  Will be getting a /29
shortly and bridging OPT1 to the WAN interface as an Internet facing
DMZ.  The reason for switching was that I was getting fed up with all
the DHCP messages on my log host !!!

The only way I could get the full bridge to work was by switching from
PPPoA to PPPoE (and I'm in the UK) !!!  I was amazed but the DSLAM
doesn't appear to mind !!!

The router came from ebuyer.com and is now available as SAMR-4114, order
code 48449
