TP-Link TL-SM321B

I don't know, that is a function of the modem/bridge device, not the router.

The Turris Omnia doesn't have a built-in DSL modem.  The modem takes the
PPPoE frames from the telephone line and puts them into the Turris Omnia
over ethernet.  The pppd process on the Turris Omnia then extracts the
IP packets and routes them.

I use a Swisscom Piccolo (which is otherwise known as Motorola / Netopia
7640-47) configured as a bridge/modem from VDSL to ethernet and then the
Turris Omnia as the router.  I wrote a blog[1] about putting the Piccolo
into bridge mode and removing the Swisscom backdoors.
