    hello, i just brought a new wrt54gl here in dubai, now my problem is in connecting to the net as the provider here switch to pppoa over pppoe, i tried setting up my belkin router in modem mode only and use the pppoe client on wrt54gl but this doesnt work, it just timed out.

    anybody here from dubai managed to setup wrt54gl or wrt54g successfully?

    I dont know if linksys offers any ATM products, pppoe is pretty much a standard as far as DSL or ppp connectivity to the isp goes. I know there are a very few offerings out there that run pppoa so you could find then but i dont know if any are going to be in a blue or silver box. Does your provider not offer a way device or program for you to connect? But back to the point, any of the wrt routers that i have used, worked with or own only are capablae of ethernet connectivity. Let us know how you connect to the pppoa provider and well do our best to come up with a solution for you.

    Hi, are you using the original linksys firmware for the WRT54G or something else like Freifunk, DD-WRT or SVEASOFT

    A good place to find cheap second hand WRT-54GS with DD-WRT already loaded is:
