Airport Extreme with DSL Modem - PPOE settings
OK, so after several hours of swearing and cursing, i have my new airport extreme sitting behind my dsl modem now working and connected to the internet.
With my older linksys router, I had the dsl modem set to 'bridge' PPP location mode. That didn't work with the airport extreme it seems and nor did having the PPP on the modem. So, i selected 'PPP on the computer' PPP location mode and that seemed to do the trick.
So, question is -
- why doesn't 'bridge' mode work with the apple extreme? does it, and i'm not doing it right?
- is 'ppp on the computer' ok and any reason to not want this - any degradation in network performance etc??

"I think" what you are doing (bridging PPP) limits you to one computer connected at a time - probably recommended by the ISP, right? :-) The right way to use a router is to set up the router to do your PPPoE connection authentication and have you computer Not do this anymore.
