    I just want to know if its possible to forward or relay PPPoE through a WRT? Coz more than one PC has to login via PPPoE (different accounts) and i simply dont get a connection through a PC connected to the WRT. But the WRT itself is able to connect!

    Plug you ADSL modem into one of the LAN ports and not in the WAN port. This way each of your PCs should be able to establish it's own PPPOE connection.
    Of course the disadvantage is, that either the router can establish a PPPOE connection (when the modem is connected to the WAN port) or the other PCs (when the modem is connected to a LAN port). But never both at the same time.

    But most other routers with PPPOE passthrough that I know of, cannot do PPPOE passthrough and PPPOE dialin at the same time.

    thanks for the quick help!!!

    well actually there is no modem couse its a private PPPoE. so maybee i can plug the "PPPoE-LAN" into the lan and the wan port at the same time couse the router hast different MAC's. not sure if this will work but i'll give it a try....tomorrow!

    That works!

    Just put your modem into LAN a LAN port, and a LAN port to your WAN port. This way, either your Router or your PC is able to connect to this beatiful world wide web... ;-)
