So I've been holding off asking for help to try every possible alternative to solving the problem I have with my wrt54g losing PPPoE connection during heavy traffic. (relative to defined bandwidth of 256/128) So here's the problem. The router dials in PPPoE just fine, but when I start downloading or uploading through bittorrent or even visiting a website that sends a lot of traffic (maps.google.com in sattelite view). The weird thing is, I can download a file via HTTP for hours without troubles, but when I do something that uses multiple connections for data (?) such as bittorrent, download managers which split files into multiple streams, or visiting a web page with a lot of seperate large images I lose PPPoE until router redials (minimum of 20 seconds) and the router is assigned another IP. (dynamic) What I've tried. Latest stock firmware. Using just the dsl modem without the router to see if it's not the router causing the troubles. Manually inputting the MTU of 1492. Slapping the monitor. Punching the cat. None of which worked. Obviously, I could use the dsl modem as the PPPoE dialer and let the router hand out IPs and work as a firewall, but the problem with that is the modem will have firewall enabled by default with no option to change it when it's set to dial PPPoE and not work as bridged ethernet. I most definately want to use the wrt54g as a firewall. I absolultely cannot work with the modem's NAT interface. Will the router output the PPPoE error to the remote logger? (Wallwatcher) HARDWARE: WRT54G - 3.1 Firmware Version : v4.70.8, Hyperwrt 2.1b1 + Thibor14 Does anyone else using PPPoE have this same problem?
