      Re: Sky Connections Changing from MER to PPPoA

      I've got the WAN on the Buffalo connecting to the Sky on ip: 192.168.0.1, subnet 255.255.255.0, gateway: 192.168.0.254 dns: 192.168.0.254, 10.15.0.x is for the Buffalo LAN side.
      I think you may have that the wrong way round. In the WAN or Internet setup, the IP should be 192.168.0.254 and the Gateway 192.168.0.1. I would use OpenDNS as your DNS servers. Your LAN should be fine.

      My connection has just gone back to PPPoA here as well. Stats pretty much the same as before.

      Why do I always have the image of 'Joda' from Star Wars in my head when I read deadman's posts?

      Very strange!

      Fibre looks like it will be keeping MER its the ADSL ones that are being changed to PPPoA from the reports so far.
