ISP requires Access Concentrator Name for pppoe

    I have a broadband connection of type "Metro Ethernet" where the ISP directly provides a LAN cable. There is no router or any other equipment at my place.

    The ISP requires pppoe client to provide "Access Concentrator name" (ACNAME) to be able to get IP address and connect over pppoe.

    (If one runs pppoe-discovery it shows there are multiple ACs on the network. A particular AC out of those as specified by ISP needs to be put in ACNAME field in the network settings.)

    My connection works fine from my Linux PC only after specifying this field.

    I have now purchased WRT54G (Ver 7) router to be able to access the connection from a laptop.

    There doesn't seem to be a way to specify ACNAME field in the router.

    Is there any firmware that could allow specifying this? Is there any other way to resolve this?

    Please let me know if any more information about my setup will help.
