For sure, but you have posted on the forum, presumably for help from the community?
We don't need to know how PPPoE works, we know that...we need to know how you sending the PADI packet and if you have tried using a different method to send it!
I can assure you websquadza knows how PPPoE works.
Thing is they learning your routers MAC, on a VLAN that has other clients already able to auth via PPPOE. something does not make sense and it's logical to assume it's your side as what else could it be?
Have you got a laptop directly plugged...
@rpm I feel mybb should put some investigative peeps on this. There are potentially 1000's of dlink DSL routers which are proxying clients connections! who knows what data is being mined by this proxy.
current contents of : http://wpad.domain.name/wpad.dat
function FindProxyForURL(url, host)...
Here is the thread...
Post back here if it works when you disable proxy in windows
@JJJoubert have you perhaps got a dlink router?
EDIT: Ye sorry i see you mention you have a dlink router...give me 5 to find the old thread
Your connections are most likely being proxied. It related to WPAD
So one would think....but they not accurate, some of them are not even digital!
I also question if the FNO's know where their fibre lines are...wayleaves say for example 1M from erf boundary and the FNO guys just put where they want...how they gonna find them later who knows
Some of the FNO's just have piss poor backup systems implemented. Very little engineering thought going into a lot of these.
Some of the "solutions" I have seen are laughable and would be more akin to home DIY kit to run your TV during loadshedding. FTTx is critical infrastructure in my opinion.
