when my internetconnection via PPPoE is disconnected during start of my Mikrotik 3.17 (hotspot) PC,
I see retries like "dialing" in ppp-interface-status using winbox, but it never succeeds.
Disable/enable of interface or ppp does not help either.
So I have to reboot the hotspot-PC. Then everything is fine.
Because after a power outage, my hotspot PC might be ready before the PPPoE connection is up again, and then a connection to the internet will never succeed.
Until I go out to a remote place and reboot.
However, doing a disconnect after successful connection, and then a reconnect, connection will be established successfully.
PPP is set to permanent on my hotspot-PC.
Is it a bug or a feature ?
