Any hope for PPPoA support?

Tue Oct 04, 2005 4:23 pm

I've seen the requests from users in Europe for PPPoA support, and I think there are more and more DSL installations in the U.S. that are using PPPoA. Here in Arizona, many of the major DSL providers have switched to PPPoA.

Are there any plans to support this in the foreseeable future?

In order to do that you need an ATM interface! or a pseudo ATM Interface..(driver)

I assume for the ATM interface we'd need something like the Sangoma S518 card. Are there drivers for this card?

Would a "pseudo ATM interface (driver)" allow us to use an external ADSL modem in bridged mode and do the authentication on the MT?

AFAIK MT does not support ATM.

A shame as there are PCI cards available (155, 622Mbps as well as xDSL) and some telco customers we know who would love a nice low-cost powerful router.

If you go in bridged mode then you don't need ATM and thus PPPOA. You only need PPPOE which is included in MT. Unless your extrenal ADSL modem is not Ethernet connected.
