pppoe bug in Satori-4.0 v2.07.1.7sv???

    Hi forum users,

    I have an interesting problem with the Satori 4.0 and WRT54G: After disconnecting the pppoe-connection via web-frontend it is impossible to connect again! The router tells something about "could not get IP-address from pppoe server".

    The router is configured to keep the pppoe alive, redial 30 sec.

    I checked ps via ssh: in the previous used Samadhi2 v2_2.00.8.6sv the pppoecd and redial processes where killed after disconnecting, in Satori they stay alive. But killing them manually does not help. I have to restart the router to be able to connect again.

    When I configure the router to connect on demand, reconnecting does work.

    Does anybody know how to avoid a reboot of the router? The manual connection is vital for me, because I have no flat rate....

    EDIT: The following I found out meanwhile ;)---------------------------------
    And by the way: does anybody know how to set up cron jobs and startup-scripts permanently in nvram without recompiling the firmware? What's the function of the empty rc_shutdown and rc_startup-values in nvram?

    Thanks for your help in advance and greetings from Germany!

    I'm using Satori 4 on a WRT54G v1.1, too and on my router the pppoe process does get killed when disconnecting pppoe via web-frontend.
    Perhaps it's a problem with the pppoe implementation of your ISP? My ISP is GMX (Telekom infrastructure) and dis-/reconnecting is working fine. What's your ISP? I think I have read somewhere, that QSC has a non standard conforming pppoe implementation.

    It might also be a good idea to check, if it's working with another DSL modem.

    Hi littlewhoo,

    thanks for your reply!!!

    My provider is also based on Telekom infrastructure (1&1), but my WRT54g is a V2. So this COULD be the cause.
    But the older FW versions worked without a problem, so something must have changed. The command line switches of pppoecd are the same, but the pppoecd versions are different.

    I tried several different DSL-routers without a problem, but I never changed the DSL-modem, because I have just one and it's an 3 years old Siemens, one of those big white boxes....
    I'll try to get another one from a friend. Stay tuned!

    got the same problem.
    Provider is Hansenet and Firmware Satori-4.0 v2.07.1.7sv.
    Before update ... everything was fine.
    Even after 24h disconnect it doesn't reconnect.

    got another DSL-modem for testing, but have no time till tomorrow. I will post when have news!
    But I don't think that's the modem. All my other routers work fine and even the WRT did before the firmware update.

    Same here. Also got V2 router and 1&1 DSL and one of those big white boxes ;-). No problem reconnecting after manual disconnect.

    Hi all,

    I tested different DSL-modems. Two old Siemens bricks, a slightly newer Telekom modem (produced in Isreal) and an AVM Fritz DSL-box without success.

    After that I tested different firmwares from Linksys and Sveasoft. The problem occurs ONLY with Satori v4!!! In Alchemy-pre5.1 v2.07.1.8sv this problem seems to be fixed, but I don't want to use it, because it's not official.
    Now I'm currently using Samadhi2_v2_2.00.8.6sv without problems.

    In short: If someone has problems with DSL and Satori, simply don't use it! :wink:
