I recently was working with a DSL line in Spain, provided by
Telefonica, the incumbent (and installed and working the day after it
was ordered, at that). The CPE is a little Zyxel box. One morning it
broke, because they had provisioned the fixed IP that was ordered
with the line but not initially supplied, and they omitted to tell us
that when you get a fixed IP it's provided using RFC1483
encapsulation rather than PPPoE.
Anyway, that was sorted after some tech. support calls, but the
question now is is it possible to set the device up in bridging mode
and have Linux do the RFC1483 encapsulation? We'de like to do that to
have a rather more featureful gateway box (the Zyxel will port
forward, but only one for one, so we can't e.g. port forward assoretd
ports to the ssh ports on assorted internal boxes).
I've googled a little, but not with any great success - I did find
Caolan's page about the USB modem UTV supplies :-(
