    im new to DD-WRT and the Linksys Router.
    I have a WRT54GS 1.1 with Firmware Version: DD-WRT #22 prefinal4 (Talismen)

    I connect via PPPoE to my ISP. Now to my first questions, is there a possibility to show the Internet connection time? My ISP automatically disconnects the connection every 24hours, and i want to be able to see the current connection time. (e.g. reconnect before starting a bigger download etc.)

    2. Whats the difference between PPPoE and RP-PPPoE? Which one should i use, and why?

    3. Whats the use of UPnP? It's enabled by default on the firmware.

    And the last questions. I detected, that some connections freeze when you download something to a PC on a LAN port. The strange thing is, that the connection always freezes on the same file, at a specifiy filesize. (e.g. 606kb).

    Sorry for my bad english, hope its understandable.
    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    Best regards,
