Using PPOA on a D-Link DSL-300T ADSL Modem with an SMC Router (SMC7008ABR)

I am currently upgrading my broadband facilities.  I have acquired an SMC Router (SMC7008ABR) and I hope to use it with a D-Link DSL-300T ADSL Modem.  My ISP has stated that the modem needs to be configured using PPOA.  I note however that the router uses PPOE.  Are there likely to be any problems with this?  Sorry if this sounds obvious to a lot of people, but any advice would be appreciated!

Many thanks,

Pretty likely there are going to be problems, 2 totally different protocols. If your SMC has no option for PPOA, a firmware upgrade that would enable it is possible, but not likely if original model did not support it. Sounds like you'll be needeng a different router.
