    Just bought a Speedtouch 585v6 upon recommendation by other 585v6 PPTP WRT users, but am finding issues utilizing all available bandwidth.

    Throughput seems to hit around 400KB/sec before the CPU hits the roof and the load average increases constantly, to over 1.6 so far.

    Are there any tweaks available to get around this issue?

    Thanks :)

    Network - Advanced Settings - DHCP/DNS - Reduce Packet Size
    I have an Alcatel 510v3 and I use it with PPPoE no troubles at all...

    Hi! I had problems using my WRT54G v2.2 with Tomato 1.07 and a Thomson 516v6 (PPPoE random disconnects). After disabling DHCP on the 516v6, which was configured as bridge, everything seems to be ok. I guess "Reduce Packet Size" would have worked as well.
    Thanks for the hint! The relationship between disconnects and some DHCP issue really rang a bell and made me try this!
