Topic: WL500gP, KK707, PPPoE flaky w/ Earthlink?
Hey Folks. My buddy's got a shiny newWL500gP with 707 (2.4) loaded, sitting on his PPPoE line and running well .. mostly.
The router stops responding to the net. He comes home, in a flurry, and reboots the toaster before the wife gets home (and kills the project). All is well. Repeat once or twice a day (no pattern yet).
He's going to go back to WR within the day, but I wanted to know:
- anyone else seeing this? Are you on Earthlink (via Mindspring) and NOT seeing anything hinky with PPPoE?
- is WR really as abandoned as I fear?
- My regional telco uses DHCP over DSL. Why do some idiot companies get to use crappy MTU-munging hacks without dying?
Okay, the last one is optional. I'm used to having more choice, and maybe some people in the third world and the eastern US don't have that choice, and I feel for people like them. Thanks for your eyeballs, and any help you can provide.
