    So im using my router to authenticate the PPPoE connection. Tomato reports connected even though i just reset my modem.

    Turn on PPPoE logging.
    Look at your log.

    Your overview page is "refreshed" every 3 seconds by default.

    When you disconnect the ethernet cable between router and modem, you will see a message in your log, after a minute or two:

    "LCP appears to be disconnected"
    Tomato will then send an LCP Termination Request.
    Only then will the session be "disconnected".

    The PPP session could also be terminated from the AC or your modem, in which case you will see:

    "Received LCP Termination Request", followed by termination.

    But i soft reset the modem so it probably wont detect a cable unplugged.

    Also doestn detect disconnects when my modem drops ADSL the connection.

    yup, there is no real time internet connection detection. I need to reboot my dsl modem every couple days, and the router does not know it lost internet connection - something to do with the ip chage (dynamic ip for dsl here). I have to 'refresh' my router to able to surf again. I'm hoping the programmers here will come up with a fix or script to do real time or on-demand check from the router to the modem. The router would 'refresh' itself accordingly if it detects no connection to the modem.

    ps. my modem handles the PPPoE.
