That is if you want it (modem/router) to work in PPPoe mode. For bridge
mode, you still have to do the configuration on your computer. Bridge
mode reduces hassles of forwarding various ports in the router/modem, BTW.

In my case though, I use my modem in bridge mode and use a Debian
Testing based old machine as a router. Heck of a lot of freedom I have
with iptables than with the limited options in the router's firewall.
