Alchemy bugs ?

    I Recently flashed my WRT54GS 1.0 with Alchemy Final (Alchemy-V1.0 v3.37.6.8sv) and i found something strange:

    I have ADSL (PPPoE) internet service and i have been experiencing router hangs when it reaches the Max Idle timeout time (im using Connect on demand). Power, WLAN and Internet leds are turned on but i cant connect to the router, i cant even detect a signal with NetStumbler.
    I dont know if this bug is related to this bug in Alchemy rc6 ( Fixed active filter for on-demand PPPoE (untested) )

    Im now testing the option Keep alive.

    Another strange bug is on Status page, my MAC Address is wrong, it reports: MAC Address: 00:00:00:00:00:00

    The firmware Flash was succesful and i hard reset the router afer and before flashing, and loaded factory defaults.

    Strange, Strange ....

    still no luck

    Just an update, PPPoE doesnt even work in Keep Alive: Redial Period 30 secs

    Conclusion: PPPoE is broken.
