I still blame this on AT&T's odd proprietary B.S. or on DSL in general. I never had these issues with a cable or fiber-optic set-up. Anyway...here's my specifics:
There is nothing proprietary to AT&T's legacy ADSL (PPPoE is only used with that).
1) Which AT&T DSL Package do you have I pay for very basic service...3.0 Mbps down.
Before U-verse HSI was deployed, that was called, "at&t Yahoo! HSI Pro"; 3008/512 for down/up sync.
4) Is your PPPoE login info (username & password) entered in the modem, in your router or do you use PPPoE software? It's on the modem, but I tried running it in bridge mode and the damned modem seemed totally unresponsive with no IP address.
A bridged modem does not have the public IP address, that will go to the WAN side of the router. The bridged modem is not accessible from the LAN because of the PPPoE encapsulation done by the router. The easiest way to access the GUI of the bridged modem is to connect a stand alone computer directly to the modem.
9) Provide line stats as follows
e) Motorola 3360:
Line State Up
Data Path Fast
To Modem To Internet
Data Rate (kbps) 3008 512
SNR Margin (dB) 11.5 22.0
Line Attenuation (dB) 47.0 27.0
Address Netmask Name
Modem IP Address 192.168.1.254
Modem Netmask 255.255.255.0
DHCP Address 192.168.1.64
SNR and attenuation are good; shouldn't be a cause for problems.
I see a potential problem with the private IP addresses; and Netgear would actually force a change in your situation. The modem is reporting that your Linksys has been given IP address 192.168.1.64. The default IP address on the LAN side of the Linksys is 192.168.1.1. This means both sides of the router (WAN and LAN) are in the same IP address block: 192.168.1.0/24. As I said, Netgear would force a change on the LAN side to resolve potential conflicts; Linksys does not. I suggest changing the third octet to any valid value, other than '1', on the LAN side of the Linksys. 192.168.2.1/255.255.255.0 (IP Address/Subnet Mask) would work.--
