Hey all as i said im having real trouble here configuring my router to work with my internet, i have Snap internet through the University Of Canterbury and it is a PPPoE set up, which means username and password.

I was told to get a router so i could use an Xbox 360 and my laptop through the WAN port in the wall here, which only allows one piece of equipment a day unless you have a router.

I have a Netgear RP614v4 Router capable of PPPoE connections and the following is my problem as i percieve it.

If i enable "Does your connection require a login?" then i get an amber light which means i cannot connect

But if i choose not to enable it i get a green light, access to internet which takes me to the Snap webpage offering to sign me up for a plan, i have a plan, but i cannot sign in, and just to mention, my original method of signing in (shortcut on desktop as per network setup wizard) does not work through router.

Below are some screenshots to show what i mean.

Sounds like the configuration of PPPoE needs to be set in your router, though I have never seen a working PPPoE connection in NZ to date.
New Zealand is known for PPPoA (Over Adsl, On Always).
Try placing your router into bridge mode, as if connecting into another modem/router ADSL compat. this would be one thing to definetly try.

Also get any DNS settings etc from your ISP/Uni provider.

What modem do you have? [That was a stupid quesstion, just figured you don't have one Smile]

Also here is a page from Netgear about not being able to connect to the Internet via the router.

Telstra use PPPoE connections on a lot of there ADSL.

Minaithnir2005 is right - Snap uses PPPoE for their UC Internet connections.

Use mac cloning: "Use computers MAC address". Answer no, your connection does not require log-on. Obtain IP address Automatically.

Then in theory, it shall pick up an IP address, pass the Internet traffic through to your PC. When you log-on using your PC, it will log that mac address, and then think your router is the PC.

NB: make sure you have only the PC attached when you set this up. Also, anytime you have to log back on, make sure you always use the same PC to log-on





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
