    I have a FTTH connection that comes with a Router (CTU) that requires DHCP enabled for the Voip. I want to use my Linksys RV082 to PPPoE to the provider, however can't seem to make the final connection. I can ping an url and it get's back just fine however dns lookup comes out invalid. The connection comes with 1 static ip address. My question is, can I set the RV082 as a router / DHCP and still have it connected with my provider issued router / DHCP It's on the same subnet. Is there anywhere in the RV082 that I have to list up the other DHCP to getting through?

    What exactly are you referring to when you say you have an "FTTH" connection? Moving on, I would bridge the modem (if that is possible) and then set the RV082 to "PPPoE." However, in order to do this, you would need to know the username and password that your account uses to connect to your provider and configure it on the RV082.

    This kind of configuration makes the modem a simple "dumb modem" and now allows the router to negotiate the isp connection.

    Let me know if I've missed the scope of what you're trying to do (I'm a little rusty) :)
