    Let me begin by saying thank you in advance to anyone who can assist with my issue.

    I am trying to set my WRT54G v2 up to handle the PPPoE connection with my AT&T DSL connection. After placing the dsl modem (speedstream 4100) into bridge mode, I set up my router in PPPoE mode, enter my username and password and then save the settings. At this time my modem connects to my ISP and I am given an external IP address, gateway information, DNS servers etc...
    I then try to connect to the internet from my PC and I am unable to connect. When I ping yahoo for example from my PC, it shows the IP address of the website (so I assume the DNS server is working) but it never connects.
    When I run a tracert to that same address, the connection goes to my router but no further.
    The most interesting part is that I am able to ping FROM my router.

    So... to summarize"

    PPPoE on router (Connected)
    Ping from PC to router - Successful
    Ping from router to internet - Successful
    Ping from PC to internet - Unsuccessful

    Can anyone help me with this issue?
