What is the exact Model of your Router?
router is a linksys befrsr41
ha, that was the exact url I told moribundman to follow!
I'm curious about something. is the linksys befsr41 router any different to setup than an apple airport router? I know the befsr41 is wired and the airport is wireless. I don't mean that. I mean the "bridged mode" thing. if I understand correctly, when you follow the instructions at the above link, the 2210 modem will be put in "bridged mode" and the befsr41 router will handle the pppoe.
a while ago you and wayjac showed moribundman and me how to connect a 2210 modem to a mac via an airport router:
»[General] PPPoE or DHCP with Earthlink (Mac OS X 10.4)?
it seemed that in that case the 2210 modem handles the pppoe.
are the two setups different or are am I overlooking something?
