wondering if you guys can help, i have a netcomm NB5 modem and a linksys WRV54G (AU), straight out of the box, no firmware changes. The modem works fine receiving the 512/128 ADSL connection (although i have heard the modem has it's fair share of bugs). I am trying to get the linksys to handle the connection so as to use it for VPN. I have set the modem to bridged mode (it's IP was first changed to 192.168.0.1) and then set the linksys to 192.168.0.5, set to PPPoE, input the username & password, and saved changes after each setting change. I have plugged in the ethernet cable from the modem's lan port to the linksys's internet port, then my laptop into one of the four lan ports in the linksys. For some reason, the linksys just won't pick up the connection, i have checked the status pages and all the IPs come up as 0.0.0.0's. I have performed hard resets on both the modem and linksys, then put in the same info but still nothing. I read in the stickys on this forum that this linsys doesn't like PPPoE and there were suggestions that perhaps it just doesn't work, is this right? is there any work-around? Any one have a similar problem and know how to fix it? im pretty sure i've tried all basic trouble shooting, i've had a lot of experience doing this same procedure with the NB4 modems and netscreen 5GT's, so im pretty confident im doing the correct things... any help would be greatly appreciated!
