Hi,

I have just replaced my Dynalink RTA1320 with a Draytek Vigor 120. I am connecting to a Linksys WRT54GL running Tomato. I just upgraded the Draytek firmware to 3.2.4.1. 

I have configured the Draytek with PPPoE/PPPoA Client enabled, and PPPoE Passthru enabled. The WRT54GL is configured to connect via PPPoE with my ISP username and password and everything is working ok.

My question is do I need the PPPoE/PPPoA Client enabled? I have read elsewhere this isn't needed and should be disabled, but if I do this on my modem, it won't connect (via the WRT54GL). The DSL syncs up ok but the WRT54GL is unable to connect. Unless I reenable the PPPoE/PPPoA Client on the Draytek.

I am pretty sure (but not 100%) on the old firmeware I had the PPPoE/PPPoA Client disabled and it was working ok. Although I do recall after I disabled the option, when I restarted the modem it was automatically reenabled.

Just wondering if anyone else has seen anything like this and if my setup sounds like it is configured optimally.

Cheers,
Ben

And also - the only ADSL stats I can get from the Draytek are the up/down speeds, SNR margin, and Loop Att.

E.g.  Mode                           State                 Up Speed       Down Speed       SNR     Loop Att.
        ADSL2+(G.992.5)   SHOWTIME     166222        10364522         15      22

Is there any way to get more details? On my RTA1320 I was able to get much more detailed stats about the ADSL connection.

i have exactly the same setup.  Mine is "PPPOE/PPPOA Client" enabled and PPPOE Pass-through.  Works perfectly with tomato.

There are a bunch of CLI commands you can use through a Telnet session. The Draytek site will have some more info.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I have downloaded the User Manual and Quick User guide and can't see any mention of the CLI commands. Couldn't see anything in the FAQ section on the website either.

Anyone know where I should be looking?
