I was just looking for some clarification on the setup I'm try to do.

The crux. Is there anyway to send a pppoe connection over a wireless connection.

I have a single jack for internet but want the authentication to be done in a different room. Only way currently is via a wireless signal.

So this is what I would like to do

Zxyel VDSL in bridge mode -> TP Link MR3420 -> Wireless -> |||||||||||||||| House Walls |||||||||||||| wireless -> Zxyel WAP3205 -> Routerboard authenticating the pppoe connection.

Is it possible to do?

I want this setup to be able to concentrate on using the router board to do everything in and outside the network.

You just need to create a layer 2 bridge. Any Ubiquiti gear can do this. Other option might be Ubiquiti AirWire which requires no set up and is simply a 5Ghz wireless bridge.

Why don't you just put the RB connected to the Zyxel. Use one of your Wireless boxes as the Wireless AP and the other wireless box as a client (or WDS)

But yes.. what you suggest on the original set up will work fine as well

Thanks Guys

I'll probably go down the Ubiquiti AirWire path.
