Hopefully I am posting in the right place.. Ok MacBook Pro (also my company computer Dell Latitude), Airport Extreme, Internet = VDSL using PPPoE. Used a Linksys wireless router to dial in on PPPoE and keep connection alive. No problem for 6 months then dead. Router can not make a connection. Got rid of the Linksys and bought an airport and same deal. In short here is what I have found. If I connect the Mac or PC directly to the VDSL modem via LAN cable (hard wire) they both dial right in and and connect quick fast and in a hurry no problem. Now we unhook the LAN from the laptops and plug into the Airport Extreme. Set airport to dial PPPoE and keep connection alive. No joy router can not connect. Now set airport to bridge mode and use the PPPoE dialer on Mac and PC laptops. Same problem except after about 10 or 15 attempts to connect it will finally hook up. I don't get it what's up? Why can I hookup via hard line instantly but, can not do the same wirelessly? Has my VDSL modem crapped out?
