PPPoE passthru with WRT54G v1.1?

    I'm using a VoIP ATA which can connect to Internet with my DSL PPPoE login.
    My VoIP provider does advice to let the ATA connect to Internet with PPPoE login. It seems that VoIP is better.

    For now, it's behind my WRT54G with static DHCP. It gets a local ip address. I can't make it connect with PPPoE through the router.

    I want to leave it behind the WRT54G to use QoS. I could use a switch with the router and the ata attached to the switch but I would loose QoS.

    Is there any firmware that can do this?

    The reason they tell you its better to let the voip device run your internet connection is because it does its own QoS internally prioritizing its voip traffic before all else. The long and short of it is the device running your pppoe connection is the edge device, and only device behind it will beable to connect. In your case let the WRT run the connection then set your network up however you need to keep your voip connection stable.

    Does youe VoIP ATA have two eithernet ports, one labeled "Wan" and another labeled "Lan"?

    If it does like my Sipura SPA 2100 has, then that is a bridge and you can connect the Voip ATA to the modem then connect your router to the Lan port which will pass through to the router. Then both units are connecting to your DSL line with PPPoE.

    Ok.. so I keep my WRT connected to the modem. I activate QoS for ATA ethernet port with Premium service and everything should be ok?

    Actually it does, but I tried this solution and I got several problems. That's why I want to keep the ATA behind the router.
