I have my Vigor 130 configured in bridge mode and perform PPPoE from a Linux machine. 

 

When running Firmware version v130_3793_modem_STD on the Vigor 130 everything works as expected.

 

I tried updating the firmware to v130_3812_modem_STD with no changes in the modem configuration and no changes in Linux configuration and unfortunately it stops working

 

From the log on the Linux machine I see a whole heap errors before pppd eventually gives up. Unfortunately nothing in the firmware Release Notes points at what changes I might need to make in the configurations to get it working.

Any suggestions gratefully accepted.

The new firmware supports VLAN10 tagging for native EUBA connections rather than PPPoE to PPPoA translation. I haven't actually played with it but since it's not going to offer you any benefits why not just use the old firmware that works for you?

Tried a factory reset of the new firmware? I did a similar upgrade a few months ago, attempting to preserve settings, and everything broke horribly. After a full reset, everything was perfect.

 

I had avoided doing a reset because earlier versions of the firmware had an interface bug which made setting up the PPPoE bridging a nightmare. Fortunately that was fixed in the new firmware and it took all of a minute to set up again.
