    Dear Friends, I have read around the web that is possible to add PPPoA encapsulation to WRT installing this package @@ kmod-pppoatm_2.6.16.7-brcm-1_mipsel.ipk @@ from the DD-WRT package.
    Can Someone give me help for install, configure and use this package?? It really work?

    I'm working now with a router/modem dg632 that is not the best but I have only it now . The problem is that I have a not very small WiFi network between the mountain of the central part of the Italy and this router give me some routing problem. When it have to manipulate more connection (p2p + download accellerator + http + Instant Messaging ) and some ip....it slow down my wifi network.
    I think that to resolve my problem I could use DG632 as a modem and WRT54GS like router/NAT/AP.
    Are this correct?
    Please Help me...I'm student and I wouldn't buy ADSL router like CISCO and Zyxel that is more expensive.
    Can someone give me more about PPPoA on DD-WRT??
    Many thanks to all
    Best regards

    P.s. Sorry for my bad english

    I don't understand ? You don't need PPPoA on a WRT !
    PPPoA is only for gateways (with internal modem).

    With a gateway (ADSL2MUE or a WAG for example) you have 2 solutions :
    either you set the gateway in "bridge only" mode and the WRT in PPPoE
    or you set the gateway to PPPoA and the WRT in "Static IP" or "Dynamic config" depending respectively on the gateway DHCP server is off or on.
