Hi there!

I am happy using m0n0wall on a IBM Netstation 8364 now after having  
some trouble setting it up last night.
Are there any known Problems with RTL NICs and PPPoE?

There were connection issues (timeouts) when trying to connect to my ISP
My personal Problem is now solved because I simply switched the  
Adapters on LAN and WAN (WAN ist now the Internal Intel whatever NIC)  
and now it works.
Both RTL RTL 8139 (Rev. B and C) NICs I tried, were working flawlessly  
on my old machine running IPCop.

I didn't keep the original logs since I don't run a syslog-server, but  
it looked similar to this excerpt which I pasted from another mail on  
the list:
http://m0n0.ch/wall/list/? 
action=show_msg&actionargs%5B%5D=138&actionargs%5B%5D=17

Jan 1 00:06:23	mpd: [pppoe] device: OPEN event in state DOWN
Jan 1 00:06:23 	mpd: [pppoe] pausing 2 seconds before open
Jan 1 00:06:23 	mpd: [pppoe] device is now in state DOWN
Jan 1 00:06:25 	mpd: [pppoe] device: OPEN event in state DOWN
Jan 1 00:06:25 	mpd: [pppoe] device is now in state OPENING
Jan 1 00:06:34 	mpd: [pppoe] PPPoE connection timeout after 9 seconds
Jan 1 00:06:34 	mpd: [pppoe] device: DOWN event in state OPENING
Jan 1 00:06:34 	mpd: [pppoe] device is now in state DOWN
(to be continued...)

Additionally I remember having read something like "DOWN event while in  
state OPENING" between the lines...
Sorry that I can't provide more info right now, I hope this helps to  
solve an issue if there is any

As always:
This is a great piece of software, keep it up :-)

Regards
Markus
