As I mentioned in another message, the confusion here is that Vincent
has referred to the SpeedTouch Pro several times as a router. It is
true that the SpeedTouch Pro has routing capability, but only when
used in PPPoA mode. i-stream does not use PPPoA. It uses PPPoE, and
since the SpeedTouch Pro does not have a built-in PPPoE client, it can
only be used with i-stream as a bridge. This is why it can't route!
If you want a router, eircom will sell you one, and just like on the
ISDN service, they will sell you a small ZyXEL or Cisco router. The
Alcatel products sold with DSL are purely modems/bridges.
I hope this clears up any confusion present (not implying that you
were confused, Paul, just trying to clarify things for anyone
interested following this thread).
