Re: Need Help - PPP on computer does not work

I wish I could offer a solution, but AT&T has indeed on numerous occasions changed the way that they handle PPPoE (PPPoE is not really standardized), and/or pushed firmware to their AT&T branded "modems" that keep them from operating properly in bridge mode. I have been a victim of this kind of activity myself, and I have seen it happen to several clients.

The only solution (short of trying different combinations of modems and routers until you find a combination that works), is to give up and do the PPPoE in the "modem", and either put your router's WAN interface in the "modem's" DMZ, or use your secondary router as only an access point (if it is a wireless router and the WiFi capability is your primary reason for using the secondary router).
