Multiple PPPoE connections with one WRT54G

    I have found an interesting patch for roaring penguin pppoe, that allows you to run multiple PPPoE connections over the same network interface.
    http://geggus.net/sven/t-dsl.html (it's in german)

    Would it be possible to add this to DD-WRT? DD-WRT is using roaring penguin pppoe, isn't it?

    There are quite a few scenarios, where this could be useful. For example if you wan't to share your DSL connection with your neighbours, but want them to get their own ISP contract for legal reasons. So the WRT54G could run two PPPoE connections to two different ISPs at the same time.

    Or if you need to seperate the billing for your business internet connection from the billing of your private internet connection.

    Technically multiple PPPoE connections to different ISPs are no problem at all. Afaik most DSL modems support up to 16 concurrent PPPoE sessions. I have been running two WRT54Gs, each one creating it's own PPPoE session over the same modem, for several months without problems.
