Hello Egbert,

I'm not an expert. It's just a proposal/question. For which reason do
you need the IP assigned on the WAN side? As far as i
know it should be enough to set the monowall's WAN interface to PPPoE.
The modem (I don't know this type/model) should be configured as modem
only (bridging) mode. In my opinion this should be enough.

Do you have the possibility to check the PPPoE connection with e.g.
pppoe on Linux or Windows XP's WAN Miniport tool?
