 Subject:  pppoe problem with 1.22
 Date:  Sat, 08 Jul 2006 15:07:43 +0200
Hello

I have a strange problem with m0n0wall 1.22 with the pppoe client.
Since I've upgraded from 1.21 to 1.22 (the cdrom-version), the pppoe stopped suddenly to work
(although it worked for more than two weeks, which is even more strange to me).
After I've tested the whole hardware (including the bridged dsl-modem, the Ethernet cable, the
network cards etc.), I was sure that m0n0wall self must be the problem.

I've got the following errors in the log:

Even the reboot did not help. An interesting thing is that the pppoe interface works perfectly if I
use the older 1.21 version with the appropriate config.xml.
The conclusion now is that I use version 1.21 instead of version 1.22, which is not really good in
my opinion.

Does anybody have any ideas?

Thank you

Thierry
