MPoA works but not PPPoE

Hi Guys,

 

I'm at my wits end here about to pack in Telstra and move to another provider.  

 

I'm on ADSL+ using a Billion 7800N.  I'm on a hybrid connection which apparently cant be changed.

 

My ADSL+ connection works fine when using MPoA which doesn't require a username / password. 

When I try to configure my router to use PPPoE and enter the correct username / password along with other confirmed settings I can get a connection.

 

This is a portion of the log when I switch to PPPoE

 

daemon pppd[905]: Remote message: permission denied
daemon pppd[905]: CHAP authentication failed
daemon pppd[905]: Couldn't increase MTU to 1500.
daemon pppd[905]: Couldn't increase MRU to 1500
daemon pppd[905]: User name and password authentication failed.
daemon pppd[905]: Connection terminated.
daemon pppd[905]: Doing disconnect
daemon pppd[905]: PPP: Start to connect ...
daemon pppd[905]: Couldn't get channel number: Transport endpoint is not connected
daemon pppd[905]: PPP: PPP Server No Response !!!
daemon pppd[905]: Doing disconnect
daemon pppd[905]: PPP: Start to connect ...

 

I want to use PPPoE as I need to test a new router which doesnt have MPoA on my home network before moving to the NBN.

 

I cant use any Telstra supplied modems as I have a  Polycom phone connected through a cisco router which doesnt work with any telstra supplied router (tested).

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Telstra NBN doesn't use PPPOE it uses IPOE (No user name or password required.. Depending on Modem /Router the setting might be called DHCP. Dynamic IP or ISP does not require a login.

Thanks for the response.

I'm looking to get PPPoE working though to test the new router on ADSL before I switch.

Any ideas?

With your testing have your put your Telstra modem into bridge mode?
I work for Telstra, but my opinions are my own and not that of Telstras
