Thank you for your prompt reply.  I just confirmed everything in this
message.  Luckily I DID have an older WRAP board lying around and that has
saved my bacon today!  I was able to boot the original flash on the old wrap
board and reset the interfaces but could not get it to pickup the wifi
miniPCI card (non-critical for my application).

I now have a working unit I can send back to the site, and the PPPoE config
is intact.  I will also send them a spare router just in case an unforseen
hiccup occurs until all the bugs are worked out.

Thanks again!
