So, i'm completely out of my depth and need some help. I have a TP-Link 8816 modem, an ISP (Xilo) that uses PPPoA, and an Asus RT-N16 (no pppoa support).
If I flash the asus with Tomato, will I be able to get it to handle the PPpoA stuff, with the modem in bridge mode? With the default firmware there is no PPPoa and I have absolutely no idea how to get it to receive the WAN connection. If i plug my computer directly into the modem, everything is cool.
Have I just bought a pointless bit of kit if I need PPPoA?
I honestly have no idea how to get any of this to work, which is surprising for me, I thought it would be straight forward.
Please help! My girlfriend is getting extremely annoyed with having no internet :)
