Help needed PPPoE setup

    Hello!

    I have been using Tomato(With a buffalo WP-125) with a dls modem for a couple of years now and it has been rock solid.

    I recently shifted and now have Asus RT-N12B1. Using the stock firmware I was able to connect to my new connection (Cable, no modem, just Ethernet cable from a switch) using PPPoE from the stock Asus firmware.

    Today, I flashed tomato(v1.28.0500 MIPSR2Toastman-RT-N K26 Std) and tried entering my details in the PPPoE and haven't been able to connect.

    I am, however able to connect when I set up my WAN as DHCP. My ISP then redirects me to their portal and I need to login before I can access any webpage.

    I think the answer lies in the routing tables.

    When I set my WAN to PPPoE, on the status page, I get my gateway as 0.0.0.0

    but, when set to DHCP, it points to 106.51.65.1
    My routing table also updates to the following when set to DHCP.
    Code:
    Destination    Gateway / Next Hop    Subnet Mask    Metric    Interface
    106.51.65.1    *                                  255.255.255.255    0    vlan1 (WAN)
    192.168.1.0    *                                  255.255.255.0    0    br0 (LAN)
    106.51.65.0    *                                  255.255.192.0    0    vlan1 (WAN)
    127.0.0.0        *                                  255.0.0.0    0    lo
    default              106.51.65.1               0.0.0.0    0    vlan1 (WAN)
    Would really appreciate pointers in setting this up!

    Regards

    a workaround could be to add in web configuration interface: Administration->Scripts->WAN Up
    Code:
    route add default gw 106.51.65.1
    then save, set your router as pppoe with default username and password and reboot it.
    Also report the result maybe someone

    Hey,

    Just tried, no luck :(
    added the script to the WAN up section, but the default gateway was still 0.0.0.0 when router is set to PPPoE. Rebooted the router also.

    This is what it looks like when set to DHCP.
    Code:
    Connection Type    DHCP
    IP Address    106.51.98.86
    Subnet Mask    255.255.192.0
    Gateway    106.51.65.1
    DNS    208.67.222.222:53, 208.67.220.220:53
    MTU    1500
     
    Status    Connected
    Connection Uptime    00:01:14
    Remaining Lease Time    03:58:46
    When and when set to PPPoE (With WAN up Default Gateway script also.)
    Code:
    Connection Type    PPPoE
    IP Address    0.0.0.0
    Previous WAN IP 
    Subnet Mask    0.0.0.0
    Gateway    0.0.0.0
    DNS    208.67.222.222:53, 208.67.220.220:53
    MTU    1492
     
    Status    Connecting... 00:00:23
    Connection Uptime    -
    My Current Route table, when set to PPPoE, have no WAN interface entries, I tried creating the same entries as set by the DHCP manually, but don't think I'm going about it in the right way.

    You sure your entering your username and password correctly of the PPPoE login?

    Any other ideas?

    I know the gate way and subnet, how do set that so it auto logons using PPPoE?

    factory defaults on your router with clear NVRAM
    and reconfigure it !

    No luck with that :(

    What else could I try?


    EDIT:

    I figured out what the issue was and it's now working like a peach!

    I had entered the name of my ISP as the "Service Name". Keeping it blank solves my issue and results in a rock stable connection!

    Thanks all for the help!
