Hi All, Hoping you can help, because this problem is driving me nuts. I am in the UK connecting with an ISP reseller via ADSLMax (Ace Internet). Running WinXP Pro SP2. I have an ADSL2MUE modem bridged to a WRT54GL v1.1 running v4.71.1 Hyperwrt 2.1b1 + Thibor15c. My router won't login to the net on it's own, but I can login using a WAN Miniport (PPPoE) configured through my Network Connections. I want to login via an Internet Gateway. Why? Checking my router Status Page shows it's disconnected all the time so I don't have any stats, and I couldn't even be sure my Firewall and QoS settings are going to work (because the router thinks it's disconnected). I know this configuration does work, it worked at my last ISP (but I wasn't on a ADSLMax, was on a fixed 1Mb IPStream line). I don't want to have to dial a connection everytime I want net access. The router is configured to keep the connection alive. If I manually select 'Connect' from the status page after a few attempts it comes up with 'Unable to obtain an IP address from the PPPoE server'. Modem IP address 192.168.1.1 (the default). Router IP address configured as 192.168.0.1. PC connecting wirelessly via Netgear WG311v2, PC's static IP configured as 192.168.0.2 (I don't want to run DHCP). There is normally an XBox 360 (192.168.0.3) and two laptops (192.168.0.4 and 5) wirelessly sharing the connection. These are switched off at the moment because I am trying to cut down on what may be causing the problem. UK ISP's tend to use PPPoA. Router configured as PPPoE, which is correct because it is bridged to the modem. Just in case I have tried 'Automatic Coniguration - DHCP', 'Static IP' and 'PPTP', no joy. I know there isn't a specific fault on my line because I can login via the WAN Miniport method fine. I have made sure I am using the correct username and password. My ISP's normal login is email@example.com. I have tried changing my login to firstname.lastname@example.org and just username as per Linksys' suggestion on their Support site. I have tried re-flashing with Thibor and clearing the NVRAM on the router in case it was some bizzare screwup. I have not tried re-flashing back to factory firmware. I really want the extra features of Thibor. I am considering flashing to DD-WRT to see if that will fix the problem, but I would rather not have to. I am wondering if I might have to get involved with setting up a Startup Script? I haven't learnt anything about this so I don't really know. Has anybody else had this problem? Can anybody help me please? I have run out of ideas to try next.
