PPPoE Setup - WRT3200ACM

Hey Community,

Could somebody assist me in setting up PPPoE.
So I set PPPoe for the Wan Port of my Wrt3200acm.
I filled in the username and password provided by my ISP but it won't connect to the internet.

From /etc/config/network:

config interface 'wan'
option ifname 'eth1.2'
option proto 'pppoe'
option username 'XXX'
option password 'XXX'
option ipv6 'auto'
option keepalive '1'
option persist 'true'
option maxfail '0'
option holdoff '10'

Why wouldn't it work ?

Thank you! :slight_smile:


which provider, which connection ADSL, VDSL or ... and which modem?

It’s VDSL.
Provider is 3 (Drei) Austria.
3 bought Tele2 in Austria, so my username reflects that’s its basically Tele2‘s network.

The modem provided by 3 is the Huawei hg659. But I don’t want to use that any more.

Can I just use the Linksys wrt3200 as Modem ?

No, it doesn't have a modem. You can use it only as a router.
Check if your provider is using VLANs on the wan interface.

Are there any messages on the logs?

Also, have you switched the Huawei into bridge mode?
