It is an alcatel speedtouch home modem wich is running in bridge mode
(so monowall does the PPoE login).
I never tested it with running the alcatel speedtouch home modem without

Well they don't see that the line has been cut, because it doesn't
disconnect me always, it just sits there for 5minutes or less with 0kB/s
and then suddenly it's back up again at 330kB/s.
