    Now my provider (Tiscali) has activated VoIP; and as a result I cannot use my WAG54G v2 (AnnexA) because I cannot set the Mac Address!

    QUESTION: What device(s) can you recommend to replace the WAG54G v2 with ?

    Required features:
    - AnnexA=analog ADSL using PPPoA (PPP over ATM)
    - Dynamic DNS (DynDNS)
    - Wireless B and G
    - WDS (for my Apple AirPort Express)
    - must be able to set MAC address (for use with VoIP)
    - 4 port hub/switch would be nice too

    - If you recommend a separate ADSL modem make sure it does support setting the MAC Address (my old SpeedTouch Pro does not)
    - If you recommend the WRT54G; I say I don't want it because it does not support WDS (out of the box).

    It is sad that LINKSYS does not support WDS on the v2 hardware (I bought it because of WDS support in v1- only to discover that the one I bought is a different version without WDS).
    It is sad that LINKSYS does not support setting the MAC address; like they do on all other devices (BEFR41, WRT54G, BEV41P,...)
    Technically I could set my SpeedTouch to bridge mode, but the WRT54G does not support PPPoA (only PPPoE).

    Take care !

    PPPoA is only used with gateways (with internal modem) !
    All the routers use only PPPoE because the modem is external !

    WRT54G supports WDS with third party firmwares !
