Re: Can't get router to work

said by wayjac:

Yes the two setups are different
One setup has the modem bridged with a router doing the pppoe
The other setup has the modem doing the pppoe

I'm curious, what is that dictates who will do the pppoe? I once had a befsr41 and I remember that, unlike the befsr41 setup in this case, it was the dsl modem that handled the pppoe.

You will decide which device will do the pppoe......

The dsl modem can be configured to do the pppoe or the dsl modem can be configured for bridge mode, when the modem is bridged a router or computer must do the pppoe

are there any benefits to doing the pppoe on the modem or the router?

btw, do you know if the SpeedStream 4100 modem is a router too?
