Using PPOE depends on the kind of connection your ISP uses. Did your ISP provide you with a username and password that you are required to enter when using your broadband connection? If so, that is when you would use PPOE. If not, PPOE is probably not required. If you're still not sure, I would suggest verifying this with your provider.

If you believe the linksys router is configured correctly, but you still aren't able to connect, I would suggest bypassing it and connecting your computer directly to the broadband modem. If you are able to connect using only your computer, you know there is a problem with the router configuration, or perhaps the router itself.

Hope this helps. Please provide more info if you are still having trouble and I'm sure we will all continue trying to help!

For SBC, I believe all you should have to enter is the username/password info in the PPOE section. Everything else should be automatically configured when you log in.

your router acts as a gateway and your internet browser has to be configured to use the router for external access. The linksys manual available online [http://www.linksys.com][and the quickstart sheet supplied with your router] has the necessary configuration changes you need to make.

Give us a little more info on how your router and internet browswer [Netscape or Internet Explorer] are configured.
