Until last Saturday, I was connected using a WRT54G through a Speedstream 5260 DSL modem. A nearby lightning strike seemed to zap the modem, so my ISP (Earthlink) sent me a (refurbished) Zyxel 645-M UHP. After a bit, I found out that the Zyxel has its own DHCP/NAT/PPPoE facility, so you have to turn this stuff off and put the modem into bridge mode in order to use a router. I've done this, but about 19 times out of 20, the WRT54G "can not get an IP address from PPPoE." Once, it worked, but not very well -- the LAN light on the modem was rapidly flashing and sites like Google were slow. Is it possible that the WAN port of the WRT54G (and whatever does the PPoE stuff) also got zapped? Is there anyway to test this? The router works OK to wirelessly connect my PC (cabled to the router) to my wireless printer. Or should I dump the Zyxel and get another Speedstream? I'd rather not keep buying new hardware blindly.
