I'm having trouble setting up my first m0n0wall. I have a mini-ITX box running 
with three nics assigned and working. I have also set my ADSL modem (D-Link 
300G+) to be in "bridge mode" and it is connected to the WAN nic. My provider 
is using PPPoE and I have filled out the relevent details for PPPoE in the 
web gui. I understand that m0n0wall will use it's own PPPoE client to connect 
through the modem, is that correct?

The problem is that it doesn't seem to able to connect. I get messages like 
these in the system logs.

mpd: [pppoe] device is now in state DOWN
mpd: [pppoe] pausing 6 seconds before open
mpd: [pppoe] device: OPEN event in state DOWN
mpd: [pppoe] LCP: Down event
mpd: [pppoe] link: DOWN event

These messages appear many times with different amounts of seconds. I think 
that this configuration should be working, but I cant get access to the 

My line is definately working as I also have an existing smoothwall with usb 
modem which connects fine. I have found that if I connect using the 
smoothwall setup and then quickly plug the line from the usb modem to the 
D-Link, then reboot m0n0wall, the line is then active? Obviously that is a 
slighty annoying procedure to follow each time I turn off m0n0wall :)

Any tips where I am going wrong?

Thanks in advance,
