Hello there, I'm provided with a very poor Huawei VDSL gateway from vodafone to connect to my VDSL connection, the problem is i want to connect a separate Router to this gateway so it works as my main router, but the gateway configuration doesn't have any options to work as modem only or connect as a gateway, so is there any optimal way to configure this!

The only option is to buy (or get the ISP to provide) a compatible standalone modem or combo that can be bridged. You have to have a modem to convert from VDSL to ethernet.
