I have been battling for the past couple of days to get my WRT54G v5 router to connect directly to the internet. Firstly a little background info, I am currently living in Chile and have broadband supplied by Manquehue with a PPPoE configuration (confirmed by my ISP who also mentioned that they do not block or require MAC addresses). I have tried everything I can possible think of to get the router to connect but everytime it comes up with the same error message "Can not get a IP address from PPPoE server". I have tried booting up the modem, router and computer in every possible order, as suggested on the linksys website, I have cloned my desktops MAC address, I have tried 4 different cables in the hope that that was the problem, I have tried with a second modem (a nokia), I have tried the router using a friends connection (with a different ISP) and the router worked fine (I used the same cable so that cannot be the problem). The username and password are correct (a different error message should appear if this was the reason, which I am certain it is not), I even changed my password to have more characters as it originally only had 4 just in case that helped, obviously it didn't make any difference. As you see I am getting desperate. :sad: At the moment I am using the router as a wireless switch as the internet works fine when connected to one of the 4 lan ports, which confuses me even more. :cry: Does anyone have any ideas as to what is causing the problem and how I may be able to solve it????
