I have a D-link 300T modem configured for PPoA connected to WRT54G router running firmware level 2.04.4 installed. The only way I can get tghis configuration to work is setting ip the router for Automatic Configuration - DHCP.
First question: is this a viable setup?
Every 20-30 seconds the connection seems to stop and then about 30+ seconds later restart. For example, a download will begin stop, continue, stop,....
I have read elsewhere on this site that the problem is caused by the modem leasing an IP address every 20 seconds to the router. The router then spends some time processing that lease. Howeve, the client lease time on the router is set to 0 - 1 day.
A suggestion was made to setup the router using the leased addresses shown on the router's status pages.
Q2: Does this mean to setup the router as static IP? The router and gateway IP adresses are the same on the status pages. So I don't understand how I can do this.
Help much appreciated
