Encapsulation of PTM packets still does not make the device a router. Nor does the modulation standard used bear any relevance - Ethernet does not only use PAM either, nor does it care.Optical and copper ethernet uses different modulation but none of that is at all relevant
Regardless of whether we agree on terminology on the definition of a router, EFM or PTM, the "device" performs drastically different functions depending on whether the WAN connection setting is set to "Route" or "Bridge". Like most other consumer routers, even those with ethernet ports on both sides of the connection, the routing functions drastically slow down throughput. That was the whole point of this discussion.
In bridge mode, it performs no IP layer operations whatsoever. That's the difference.
Unless you actually have your device set to "Route" instead of "Bridge", and have gotten much higher speeds, my point stands. The device is limited to around 60mbps in router mode.
