My DSL Westell 6100 modem is connected to the DSL line using PPPoE and works great as long as I connect directly to the modem via ethernet cable plugged into my PC.
I want to connect a Linksys WRT45SG wireless router to the DSL Modem to create a hotspot. Using the Linksys default setting does not provide connectivity, even after resetting the boxes.
My question is - do I need to command the DSL modem to manually disconnect the PPPoE connection, then use the PPPoE function in the LinkSys router to get the router to connect to the DSL line? Is there a simpler way?
