    I am sure this is possible but how should it be done.

    I use an AG241 to connect to my ISP using PPPoA. As such it stores my ISP credentials and gets a public IP.

    Next I connect a firewall to the AG241. I want this to get a public IP from my ISP too (presumably via DHCP). Will the AG241 allow it and relay the DHCP request if I turn off the DHCP server on the AG241?

    I'm pretty sure the Linksys firmware does not support the PPPoA half-bridge mode, which is what you want. You will be stuck with double nat (+dmz) with another router.

    Thanks mstombs, but I'mpretty sure it can somehow as thats the previous configuration it was running as. If only I hadn't reset the unit before changing site.

    Thanks again
