How do I configure an IQrouter for PPPoE DSL connection?

Connectivity Type 

Select "DSL" to configure for DSL connectivity. 


DSL Connectivity

Once you select the DSL connectivity type, your IQrouter automatically attempts to configure itself. Once it confirms your DSL connection requires PPPoE credentials, you will be prompted to select your ISP from a list of Internet Service Providers. If your ISP uses PPPoE authentication then you will be directed to the PPPoE configuration pages. If your ISP uses only DHCP then you will be directed back to the DHCP configuration pages.  

Enter your ISP supplied username and password. Once your credentials are confirmed you will be returned to the DSL modem and line check.


If the connection is successful you will see the results of the DSL modem and line check.

If you are using a DSL modem in our list of recommended modems, you should see detailed line statistics. This information allows the IQrouter to get accurate information about the state of your DSL line and allows the IQrouter to perform extra line monitoring and tune more quickly.If your line statistics fail to meet minimum quality ratings, the configuration wizard may not allow you to continue until you address the line quality issues.

If your DSL modem and line check was successful, you can skip to the IQ Optimization section below.
