there was a small problem with the emailprovider so I'm sorry for having
it posted twice, I did forgot to put *** on the ip though.
well I've tried with just putting my laptop behind my modem and using
the PPoE software in XP and it starts fine and has the full speed
continuesly, and when I connect the m0n0wall box on it then the
connection always drops speed or just resets. I'm not sure weither
windows sends LCP packets or not, but I have had the problem always when
I checked the log and it told me something about LCP so I suspect it has
something to do with it.

I also made my provider check the quality of the link and they say there
is nothing wrong it either.
