Im on telecom adsl with the supplied modem/router thomson tg585v8. This router is absolute crap so I bought a new one before I realized telecom is on PPOA. Now I have a asus rt-n56u and am having trouble setting it up. I want to use the thomson as just a modem, absolute bare minimum usage while the asus handles everything else. I bought a new router because of the dualband 5ghz wireless n and the QoS for gaming and low prioritizing P2P.
The only way I have got it to work currently is half-bridge by assigning a public ip to a device. This does double nat, one through DMZ, and to me it doesn't seem the best option. I then read about PPTP passthrough which is apparently better so I am trying to get that to work.
Heres some pics of what I have done for my setup.
Internet works now but is INCREDIBLY SLOW. I think i have done something wrong. I am back on half-bridge now but if anyone can help me get PPTP working so i can use my new router it would be much appreciated.
