ASUS DSL-AC88U Configured in Bridge Mode
As the DSL-AC88U contains the Broadcom (BCM) 63138 modem chipset, which supports both VDSL2, G.INP and the currently being tested by BT Open Reach, I have provided a short guide on how to configure the DSL-AC88U to work as a modem (Bridge Mode) 

The DSL-AC88U supports bridge mode, but does not support VLAN ID (802.1q) whilst in bridge mode, the VLAN ID has to be handled by the connecting router .

Login to ASUS Router User Interface (UI)
Go to Advanced Setting > WAN > WAN Type - Select DSL/Ethernet (VDSL) for FTTC Connections
PVC Setting > WAN Connection Type - Select Bridge
Enable WAN Radial Button - YES
802.1q > Enable - Select NO (VLAN ID does not work for Bridge mode)

This Forum was originally created to provide a means to allow users of ASUS (SOHO) Routers - both Wireless and xDSL (modem) based to freely communicate within a Community type forum where members can work together towards sharing experience, knowledge and ideas, I have recently also been asked to include Netgear and AVM wifi / modem based routers for discussion. All I ask is that we are all fair and reasonable, we try to add value where we can and not use this forum for other non community agendas and lastly, please feel free to dop me a message offline if you feel in anyways I can improve upon this site etc.
