Re: How to change mode from DHCP to PPPoe

This type of router configuration is ideal for connecting to a modem which is set to Bridged Mode.  A Bridged modem means you need to have a PPPoE dialer set up on a computer or router to activate Internet connectivity.


Step 1: On the Setup tab, click the drop-down arrow for Internet Connection Type then, select PPPoE.

Step 2: Enter the PPPoE Username and the Password provided by your ISP.  Select Keep Alive and click on the Save Settings button at the bottom of the page.

Step 3: Click the Status tab.

Step 4: Click on the Connect button if the Login Status is Disconnected.

NOTE:  If you don’t have Internet IP address and DNS servers under the Status tab, you might need to restart the router.  Restarting is done by unplugging the power adapter of the router for 30 seconds and plugging it back in.


If you get the IP address then the router will be in PPPoE mode.
