[Troubles] PPPoE and Bridging

I have been using my Speedstream 4300 in bridged mode for some time using my D-Link DIR-655 to establish my PPPoE connection. Suddenly yesterday I have not internet access. I check the modem and it shows it has a DSL connection, but the router can't connect. So I switch the modem back to standard PPPoE mode and it connects right up. I switch it back to bridge mode and no dice from the router.

I then tried to establish the PPPoE connection with a computer directly connected to the modem. No dice. I put the modem back in PPPoE mode and it has no problems. Did something change on the network recently that might cause this?

On a side note I am also one of the many customers experiencing terrible speeds at peak times.

You should try ending the active pppoe session before changing the device that intitates the pppoe session

Also have you tried power cycling the modem when switching devices?

Just a shot in the dark.

Check to see if there is a firmware update for your Dlink, many Dlink routers have recently had issues with PPPoE sessions and Redback routers which is what Windstream uses in some markets. There was something "non-standard" in the Dlink PPPoE implementation but Dlink never stated what it was.
