PPPoE Noob

Thu May 23, 2013 7:45 pm

Hi all,

I am trying an x86 box with 6.0rc13 with a Draytek 120 adsl modem.

It kind of works, but i only seem to be able to browse google! I can open the google page, search for e.g. or and bring up the search results and advertising content, but when i click a link or type a URL directly into the address bar i get nothing. I even resolved some websites to IP's and punch the ip's into the address bar, and tried in firefox as well is IE - no change.

The same laptop works on a different wired and wireless network so i don't think it is the laptop.

I am using Google's dns so thought perhaps this was a problem and tried an ISP dns server, but that made no difference.

What have i done??

I presume its got to be something to do with the routing or NAT/firewall?

here is my config - I have a dhcp client set on my PPPoE client picking up my single static IP. At the bottom of the config i have included the contents of the routing table.

I can ping/resolve any website i like, but i can only browse google and search, if i click any links, nothing happens.

thanks for any help i'm sure i'm just being stupid..

I'm trying to setup my CCR1036-12G-4S with the same adsl modem ( Draytek Vigor120) but my issue is worse

Interface ....

PPPoE interface > Ethernet1
Ethernet1 > ADSL Ethernet modem
Ethernet4 > ( DHCP : Yes ) LAN

utilizing tools > ping and ping via PPoE interface works, however trying to ping same address via Ethernet1 failed.
Plus from ethernet4 can access Draytek Vigor120 WebGUI

Same I'm a PPPoE Noob as well

Can you turn off Add Default Gateway on your dhcp client, and turn on Add Default Gateway on your pppoe-client ?

Then see if it works

Thanks for the reply Nick,

I checked the Add default gateway settings, turns out I actually had my dhcp client unconfigured. I re set it up and it doesn't get an ip address.

the add default gateway setting was already enabled on the pppoe interface.

Its bizarre, like I say I can ping anything by name and resolve and reply ok, just can't browse.

I know my laptop is ok but I will try another just to rule it out!

just for further info, I just made sure that I was able to connect using the same pppoe connection, using the same laptop and the same draytek 120 modem and it worked fine when using the PPPoE client in windows.

I wiresharked the traffic and I could see data passing to and from the laptop and web servers but nothing in any browser..
