Most "routers" will do that job.

And that's basiclly a product of Evil Bridging, and is basically  
acting as a router.

That will happen in the second case.

AFAIK, RFC 2662 and RFC 4706 aren't available with NET-SNMP, but  
those are the ones you probably want.

http://tools.ietf.org/wg/adslmib/ is the (still active) working group  
making those, and apparently implementations of at least 2662 do  
exist. I suspect you'll find those are provider-side, though.

Let me know if you find something.
