Can't get PPPOE to connect



  • I can connect with a linksys router just fine, but I can't with pfsense.
    note that my isp requires that i clone my pc mac address, which I already did for the linksys router, and pfsense, and i entered the same username and password for linksys, and for pfsense.

    the ppp log shows what's below…

    If you filled in the service name field, try leaving it blank instead.



  • I tried with empty service name, still the same issue… ppp log below
