Re: PPPoE MSS clamp no working on upgrade

I think I've also seen this issue on 6.40.8 and 6.42.9

Is there a workaround other than re-inserting the mangle rules manually, or running on an MTU of 1500 for pppoe (which also worked as a fix)

Re: LHG 60G experience

Trying to work out if I should waste my time trying a 320 metre link with a pair of Wireless Wires?

Don't need 1Gbit - I'd be happy with 200 bit. Is this going to fly based on people's experience with latest firmware?

I'm kinda keen to see some more helpful SNMP OIDs soon - as it would be really useful to see how the link behaves in bad weather. e.g. coding scheme, and RX and Tx sig strength?

Re: Odd queue behaviour 6.39.3 between pppoe-client and pppoe-server

Interestingly, I've discovered that the 'use IP firewall for PPPoE' was checked. Unchecking this seems to cause expected queue behaviour.

So I think the issue is resolved but I'm a bit baffled that this option would cause the queues to not operate as expected?
