Could anyone point me towards an ADSL modem(PPPoA Compatible) to work with the Netgear RT311 Router. I recently was given this and would like to get it to work. I tried it with a friends D-Link DSL-300G+ ADSL Modem but my computer refused to work with it let alone the router.
Or could someone help me, I have 2 pcs and one pc works with the modem when plugged straight into it, and my laptop refuses to work with it, the DHCP assigns an address but the internet connection will not work.
Could this be the same problem I am having with the router?
Can anyone help me with a PPPoA modem that would work with an external router like the RT311?
when you configure the Modem then it takes the mac address of the computer it was connected to and only the computer with that mac address can dial the modem.
So what I did was give the computer the routers MAC address and configure the modem. Next connect the modem to the router so the router could trigger the modem to dial and reset the mac address on the PC. And ALL DONE!
note this was not explained in the d-link modems manual
