    Hi guys, I am hoping someone could help me with the following:

    I've today spent the best part of 12 hours, learning the in's and out's of how to compile the offical LinkSys AG241 source code, and now I'm tired lol.

    I've managed to compile the code in the end, and when my balls got big enough, I flashed it and prayed to god that I was not about to loose all connectivity to the box.

    The good news. It upgraded. It showed on the web UI the correct new version number. All the webUI seems to work fine.

    Problem: The PPPoA connection is not found. To be more specific, the device is not found.

    Now as the minute we lost internet connectivity everyone paniced needless to say, so I had to re-flash it with the:


    So I got the connection back up and running after 5 mins or so.

    The question is, does anyone have any idea as to why I might have lost the interface that connects to our ISP via PPPoA?

    I guess im 99,00% there on my build. Is there a way of setting if its a annex a or annex b in the source etc, could this be the problem?

    ANY help or comments would really be appreciated, as LinkSys in their wisdom fail to provide a binary version of the 1.0.1 firmware.

    The source tarball is from:

    Kind regards

    You must do this on a Linux machine (setup a dual boot?) with a Linux hard disk partition, you can't even expand the source-code correctly onto a windows file system as some directories have both upper and lower case files with the same name, and there are symbolic links which windows doesn't understand. I don't know how complete the AG241 distribution is but the WAG200G is vaguely similar and appears to compile without modification - see my post here for example:-

    I gave up on the WAG54GV3 though...
