This is an interesting point. Lets see what we can do to make this happen.
Maybe VQ can commission a small security task force within this community to 'poke around' VQ's fibernet. I am sure there are a few who is good in this and has ethnic.

SB, where are u? Hehehehe...

When I saw the screenshot, I wanted to go poke around, but I guess not...

Anyway, can the DNS option be changed after logging in?

You can change the DNS, but question is, for what purpose? To use opendns and the likes?

You can also change the DHCP LAN IP range, Zhone's LAN IP, etc.

can bridge mode user also have access to the admin config using the unused lan port on zhone?

it is possible to set bridging the unuse lan port with port isolation to wifi and set it as extra AP for the home network

so become internet -> bridged zhone -> own router -> router lan port to zhone router unused port bridged to wifi as AP

Changing the default password is ok for me, but I thought the router could do it better... My experience with some other wireless routers, they all by default, disable remote admin access, and if u really need it, you can config remote access port to prevent the URL from being easily guessed.
Due to the security concerns, we have decided to block remote WAN access to the Zhone, as well as SSH/Telnet access. Access to the Zhone's webUI will only be available from the LAN.
If anyone requires access from the WAN, please inform us by email with your details.

Did VQ also block port forwarding by any chance?
I'm unable to access my desktop since yesterday; it was ok beforehand.

To forward traffic to a intermediary rogue server and grab your traffic of course.
But all is fine now, since they block the 2 ports.

This is quite complex and we have not done this kind of setup before...
Just using the Zhone as the router instead will eliminate any potential problems that could arise from this setup such as wireless interference. The Zhone can already do 3 wifi SSIDs if you need to separate the users such as guests from your own network.

should be fairly easily as the only config i need on the zhone is the wifi to be bridge to one of the unused port (eg port 4 with the port unbridge to existing LAN of zhone or untagged vlan ) of the zhone router, no ip needed on the interface. since the zhone can only support 144mpbs for now, i hoping i can use the zhone wifi as a AP for my mobile device on my network and is on different channel and ssid from the existing AP

am i right to say, bridge mode user still can access the router admin page, using the unused port? can i have access to the page to manage the wifi?

since zhone is a all in one and powerful enough to have advanced configuration, might as well use it
