PPPoE Trouble

For a couple of days the pppoe connection at my new appartment worked like a charm. After that poof! disappeared.
The connection would go up then down. On Windows, all is fine, so I figured it was a bug with the software… nope, re-installed, re-compiled, etc…
Anyway to cut the story short, I had to stop the DHCP client on the network interface connecting to the pppoe service. After that it was AOK. It doesn’t make sense really, but it worked
So if you’re using fastnetonline.com, and need help connecting, drop me a line, I might be able to help…
I also had to edit the default route manually to use the ppp0 device! looks like it’s something that needs to be fixed. I’m thinking of going back to gentoo!
