Hello,
Just replaced my DSL modem. I can't get my linksys router to work now. Modem to PC direct is OK. When I try connection test on router, the router says: "can't get IP address from the PPPoE server". The old modem was a speedstream 4100. The new one is Motorola MSTATEA. Any ideas of what could be wrong?

Write down the PPPoE settings from your router (backup) and change it to DHCP.

That did not help!

When you connected the Modem to the PC directly, did you have to provide username and password at any point? Or did you have to use a software to connect?

Is there an IP address printed on the bottom of the Modem? Ex. 192.168.0.1
