I must raise my supporting hand along with Chris in blasting Bellsouth.
Their pompous attitudes, poor support, and ridiculous billing issues do
nothing to garner favor with me.  I made an oath many years ago to never
use their services again, and have managed to avoid them ever since --
personally.  Some of my customers have been unable to avoid them, and so
my feelings go out to them for having to deal with them on numerous
occasions. :-)

Same company as I remember and I don't see any reason why I shouldn't
continue to be Bellsouth-free for many more years.

This change does indeed fix the issue for all the sites that were
having problems. This may be common enough now with an ISP as large as
AT&T requiring it that it should be exposed in the webGUI (unless mpd
itself can be fixed). Otherwise I think people won't look into it far
enough to find the resolution and just assume it doesn't work. I'll
add it to the FAQ, but I still think it should be considered for the
webGUI.

This was uncalled for and misleading, if not an outright lie. I said
in that thread I was going to look into this issue before anyone
brought it up here, there was absolutely no "refusal to acknowledge
there could be an issue". Those of us who deal with Bellsouth on a
routine basis have more than adequate justification to "spit at" them,
trust me!  :)  I won't bother to detail the conversation on this issue
I attempted with their technical support, suffice it to say I think
the most that person knew about PPPoE is it's comprised of 5 letters.
