    I am using the WRVS4400N for some time now and it is working fine for me.
    My new Internet-Connection is an FTTH-Connection that works as an VDSL Connection inside the building.
    The Router my ISP provided me is an Sphairon Turbolink 7211, but it has not the benefits of my Linksys device. Now I wanted to
    connect to the Internet via my WRVS4400N. But this needs PPPoE Connection over VLan. Is there any possibility to assign the WAN-Port to a VLan?

    Sorry if my English is not that good, but I hope you can understand what I need.

    If you are using VDSL, that means that you may need to "bridge" the router from your ISP so it runs as a "dumb modem." Once you bridge it, all authentication will occur at your router.

    Post back and then we'll try and go from there.

    Hi Jay,

    thank you for your replay. It is a little bit more complicated.
    My ISP has run the fibre cables into our basement. There they've installed a
    micro-DSLAM that converts everything into an VDSL-Connection. Now I have here an
    ZyXelP-870M-I VDSL-Modem that is connected to an Sphairion Turbolink 7211 Router.
    The Router has now two VLANS. VLAN 20 for VoIP and VLAN 10 for the Internet-Connection. My Phone is directly connected to the Router. What I would like to do is to establish the Internet-Connection with my Linksys-Router.

    My idea was to connect is via a Switch to the VDSL-Modem an establish the connection. Therefore I need PPPoE over VLAN. But in the WRVS4400N the WAN-Port is connected to VLAN1 and I need VLAN 10.

    I hope you can understand what I am trying to say. :wink:
