    There is no PPPoA on linksys.

    You can try to put your modem in bridge mode or IPspoof mode and then use DHCP on your router

    I've got the same problem... Strange that Linksys don't have the PPPoA as an option... I got given this router and I now know why! lol

    Given that PC world are flogging these off at the moment here in the UK (with a big TV campaign) I think there will be a lot of upset people soon!

    I've done a Google, and a few people seem to have found a 3rd party firmware date that gives you the PPPoA option, but from reading other bits the router its self can't handle the PPPoA signal when it reaches the router itself! So I think its going in the bin unless I can find some dodgy firmware... can't be bothered having that and my normal ADSL router cluttering up the place... just want one nice little box... Back to Netgear I go me thinks! :frown:

    Your not going to find any firmware that offers that simply because ethernet and atm are two totally different technologies. The router being ethernet does not know how to handle atm cells and thus will never work on a pppoa network. Think about it like cell phones, you have those that use sim cards and those that do not, you cannot simply take a cell phone that uses a sim and make it work on one that does not but you can take a sim card cell and move it between providers quite readily. Well ethernet is the same way....

    There is a trick, which you can use, and that is pptp to pppoa relay with a modem that has a pptp login interface. What it does is produces a pptp tunnel between the modem and the router. I used dd-wrt and a speedtouch to do it.
    Details here if you are interested. Look near the end of the thread.
