PPPoe failing after upgrade from 1.2.3 RC3



  • Attempting to restore the configuration from my old embedded setup onto a hardware equivalent 2.0 RC1.

    The wan link never starts up – instead I get this:

    Reading prior issues, I checked for odd international characters in the config and did not find any.

    Advice would be appreciated!

  • Seems you have to reassing the interface since the pppoe connection has lost the interface.
    Or go to interfaces->assing->ppp-> edit your pppoe by choosing the needed interface.



  • Thanks,

    That worked perfectly.

    Is this of any concern as a bug to address?  I did find that my pppoe login and password failed to restore into the 2.0rc1 version, so I had typed them in again.  The association with the interface was new to me, so I'm not sure why that didn't restore properly.

  • Can you post the wan config section here from the 1.2.3 config?



  • Same here. Had to re-enter pppoe username and password.
    Also manually entered the MTU, but not sure it was really necessary.



  • Here is the section I think you are looking for: in the interfaces:
    <wan><if>sis1</if>
    <mtu><blockpriv><media><mediaopt><spoofmac><use_rrd_gateway><ipaddr>pppoe</ipaddr></use_rrd_gateway></spoofmac></mediaopt></media></blockpriv></mtu></wan>

    There is another section for the pppoe: (I changed the username and password….)
    <pppoe><username>Changed@Whoknows.com</username>
    <password>Password1234</password></pppoe>
