    I am installing a RV042 router and are trying to set it up with x2 ADSL modems (AG300) with PPPoA connections - Dual WAN Mode.

    I do not want to do double NAT (must have remote VPN functionality once setup). I believe I need to set the AG300's in some sort of bridge mode (???) and then set the WAN1 and WAN2 on the RV042 to connect to the ADSL lines. But the RV042 WANs have only PPPoE option and not PPPoA! I tried it, thinking from what I had read elsewhere that it would work... but it didnt :(


    1) Should the PPPoE option work with a correctly bridged AG300 despite the ISP requiring PPPoA?

    2) What specific bridge mode do the AG300's need to be in? there is only one PPPoA option and it is not a bridge option!

    3) Any specific settings on the RV042 side, aside from standard? WAN settings: PPPoE, Static? Gateway or Router mode?

    Sorry, this is the first time I have been requested to do a DUAL WAN with a RV042 - normally I stick with "all-in-one" units. Help!
