WAG200 as pfsense PPPOE



  • Hi,

    I wanted to install a pfsense after my WAG200 router.
    Basicly I wanted the pfsense to use the wag200 as pppoe modem.

    So I put the WAG200 Encapsulation as Bridged. I entered the correct username and password in pfsense but I can't seem to connect.

    Where can I find logs about what is going wrong?

    Thanks in advance.



  • PPPoE log should be found in Status -> System Logs, click on PPP tab.

    I have found on my pfSense 2.0.1 system that the PPP log is sometimes empty even though PPP has successfully started. Not all PPP users seem to have had this problem.

    I got this in the logs:

    funny thing is, if I use my laptop (Win 7) to do a pppoe connection everything works.
