In New Zealand all the ADSL lines use PPPoA and I want to use a Time Capsule to connect to my ISP and be the wireless network. However the TC only does PPPoE.
I have seen various conversations on Google about using a Draytek in Bridge mode to achieve this. Its PPPoA to PPPoE bridge feature is apparebtly what allows this on the Draytek Ve\igor 120 model. I could not get that model and got the
DrayTek DV2710E ADSL2+ Router, 4 LAN ports, PPPoE/ /PPPoA Relay
I am struggling to get this up and running, I can get the Draytek to connect to the Internet as a modem but it doesnt do WIFI. I particularly want the TC to be the WIFI network
What is the best way to set this up? Anyone able to step me through this?

"The DrayTek Vigor 120 is an ADSL modem with an Ethernet connection; it is not a router but a true ADSL Ethernet Modem. By providing a PPPoE to PPPoA bridge, the connected device (firewall, router or PC) can log into the Internet (your ISP) directly and have full control over the ADSL connection - that makes the Vigor 120 a unique product. You can connect any device to the Vigor 120 which has a PPPoE client facility, which includes PCs, most Ethernet-WAN routers and the Apple Airport/Time Capsule™ products.
Other ADSL Ethernet 'modems' use workarounds to get a public IP address 'through' to your secondary device/client, requiring non-standard operation and complicated dual-stage setup (modem logs in, router routes) but the Vigor 120 provides the secondary device with a real routed IP connection and the ability to fully manage the connection, making setup easy. In most cases, the Vigor 120 needs no setup or configuration - just plug it in and set up your PC or router. All login/ISP details are entered on the connected client device, not the Vigor 120. The actual connection to your ISP is still PPPoA (unlike other modems which only provide PPPoE native bridging), which is the unique feature of this product and makes it compatible with all UK ISPs, where PPPoA is used as standard."
