Thanks Vincent.
I don't know script.
I don't know PHP.
I just want M0n0 to work!

My question: how can I solve this problem ?
Ask my ISP about the parameters ? 
Which parameters ?
My ISP ? They take 3 weeks to give me DNS server
address! (First time they replied that they don't know
what is DNS and they don't have !!!)

I really don't know how to solve this problem.
I'm very surprised that there is the option for PPPoE
but I cannot activate!
Yes it's there, but I have to study PHP or script
before I can use M0n0 with my PPPoE: unbelievable!
Am I wrong ?
Why to offer something that people cannot have it!

I live in Asia but I also ask my friend to upgrade his
1.0 to 1.1 in Italy and he is facing same problem with
his local ADSL ISP now! He returned back to 1.0 but of
course this is not the way to improve a software!

I will check what to do...
If I misunderstood the meaning of your email, I'm
sorry (I'm a newbie)
But if I understood right, I will move back to
Smoothwall and bye bye M0n0! (Just regret to have
purchased 3 Soekris 4501)
