Re: Everything MLPPP

said by TSI Martin:

You would need a router that can support the Tomato/MLPPP firmware. The TG 585 would need to be set in Bridge mode for you to use with a compatible router. If I can assume you are in Alberta, then you shouldn't be affected by the Throttling right now.
Whoops, I forgot to update my location. I'm actually in Hamilton, Ontario now. Anyway, thanks for the reply. I guess I should have done a little more research before paying for the TG585. I don't think the employee who I did the original sale with was entirely clear on what I'd need for the MLPPP. I seem to remember his telling me that the Linksys was only for people bonding lines together and I wouldn't need it. Oh well. I guess I'll have to pick up a compatible router when I can afford it. Thanks again, Martin.

well if you are on a single computer, you can always use the Broadband connection in Windows with the MLPPP check to connect it that way.

I'm on OS X Snow Leopard. I looked around, and it seems that running a VM is my only option other than buying the Linksys or another compatible router. One more thing to clarify: the Linksys is only a router, not a modem/router? and putting the Thomson in bridge mode means that it simply acts as a modem and passes the routing on to the other router connected to it? Thanks.

I'd be surprised if there wasn't a way to get OSX to do mlppp, although perhaps not in the GUI.

Correct.

Thanks for the reply, claknova. I'm getting around the P2P throttling for now by another method. However, since I've only been using the Thomson gateway for a couple days, I'm thinking of calling TekSavvy customer service tomorrow to see if I can send it back and get a Linksys and the cheapest Thomson modem instead.

TekSavvy is sending me the Thomson 516 + Linksys and allowing me to return the Thomson 585 for a refund. All's well that ends well.
