Hello Chris Buechler,

Nope,  via  the  LAN  interface. The WAN side is connected to the same
ethernet  switch,  that's  because  my  DSL  modem is connected to the
switch too.

It works all okay (ping, web interface and all) until I change the WAN
mode from DHCP to PPPoE (and set username+password of my ISP account).
As  soon  as  I  click  SAVE,  no further packets from the work PC are
accepted. Ping from MW to work PC still works fine though. :-?
