Setting up WAN interface with a static IP and PPPoE



  • Hi all,

    If you have a static IP from your ISP, but also use PPPoE, I am wondering which option you choose when setting up the WAN interface. My guess that since's its PPPoE, then go with that option and enter the username and password (shouldn't it automatically pick up the static IP anyway?). I am not 100 percent sure, but it seems the static IPv4 option is if you have your own WAN. Can anyone shed some light?



  • Mh, pppoe is like a tunnel and uses 8byte from your connection. so MTU of 1492 is most the fact. All of your traffic goes through this tunnel for accounting and I think, you get every time the same IP so it is static. Other ISP (Cable) may don't use pppoe.
