Hey guys i have a pppoe connection coming through ethernet line. i.e i need to use dialer that i have created on the desktop..and i have bought a new Linksys E1000 router v2.1..now my problem is that

1) After entering all the settings correctly my router worked for 3 days after that the net is not working.i.e it cannot connect to the internet keeps giving the error cannot get IP from PPPOE
(i have connected my router in pppoe mode and use the router status page to connect and disconnect)
I have also updated the router to the latest firmware 2.1.01 and after that the problems have started.
My Net works if i directly plug the Ethernet cable in the PC.the problem starts when i connect it to my router.
I have tried power cycling.
I have tried Hard Reset.
dont know what the problem is
I wanted a detailed guide on what settings to use in pppoe mode of the router i.e all the DHCP etc etc..


2) I wanted to know if it is possible to use my pc Dialer only to connect to net irrespective of my router being power on or off??

Guys pls help me Thanks in advance

You can't use the dialer thru the router so that is a dead end.

"use the router status page to connect and disconnect"
why would you do that for? You are suppossed to just leave it connected

"I have also updated the router to the latest firmware 2.1.01 and after that the problems have started."
Good lesson to learn that you don't do firmware updates unless they specifically are going to fix a issue you are having.

I don't see you mention resetting all the pppoe settings after the firmware update. That was your next step. Reinput the account name, password etc again and then save the config.

pay by the hour? bridged mode?

Consider not using a router at all. It does not fit your criteria. Make sure you keep your software firewall up to date and update your AV and malware softwares regularly
