BT Buisness Hub 5 PPPoE to SonicWALL NSA 220

Hi Experts,

I'm getting rather frustrated. We have a WiMAX Leased line as our main WAN connection, however we got a BT Infinity 2 ADSL fiber line put in. I want to use our SonicWALL NSA 220 instead of the crappy BT Hub, this will allow me to set up a fail over to the leased line . After a quick Google search I found out I needed to use PPPoE.

Currently I have the BT Hub which is hooked up to the FTTC connection via a DSL cable, then the routers are connected via ethernet (you don't need to use a cross over anymore I think). I was just wondering, has anyone had any success setting up PPPoE on SonicOS?

Yes this will work, first you need to get your ISP PPOE settings.

Call your ISP and tell them what your planning to do, ask them how you switch the BT Hub to bridged mode.
With this information to hand put a normal lan cable between the wan(or any on newer sonics) port and the bt hub.
Configure the sonic with the ISP PPOE settings given to you on the port your connecting to the BT Hub and this will all work dreamy.

A lot of these isp connections require username passwords etc.
