    On Setup Page, PPPoE setting:

    Force Reconnect only allows to change the hour, even if I change the minutes to something else and Save (or Apply), it still defaults the minutes to "00".

    Anyone else noticed this?

    I had the same issue, on DD-WRT v24 RC-6 (01/02/08) vpn (SVN revision: 8743)

    If you check what was stored in /tmp/cron.d/pppoe_reconnect you'll see that dd-wrt actually did store the minute value correctly, so it's just a misrepresentation in the web interface.

    So this is still a bug since you can't check your exact setting. A temporary workaround would be to kill the pppd daemon using a separate cronjob:

    In the Administration -> Management Tab, add the following line to the "Additional Cron Jobs" inputfield:
    37 4 * * * root killall pppd
    In this example pppd will be killed each day on 4:37am, prompting the dd-wrt to start it again immediately. Thus you'll have a immediate pppoe reconnect.
