So you MUST use a PPPoE client, i.e. simple DHCP will not work?

PPPoE clients are usually something to be avoided. Hopefully most ISP's will supply a suitable cable/dsl router setup for ease of use

From AASIP's site for the FTTC product.

Includes an VDSL modem as part of the ongoing service. Customers will need a PPPoE capable router or software to use the service.

DHCP doesn't work, someone further up the thread tried it. I foresee plenty of confusion with people buying routers in PC World "for a BT line" when they need a "cable router" for FTTC services over their phone line.

Talk about hand the VM cable sales people an easy point when trying to sell.

I can understand them perhaps wanting to use PPPoE to support things, but it needs to be hidden away from people to avoid the router/PC problems.

Hopefully PPPoE stacks have improved of late.

Will I be able to connect the modem to my Draytek 2820 ADSL2+ router via the WAN2 port?

Assuming WAN2 port is ethernet then yes

Given that FTTP services in Japan and S Korea have been delivered via PPPoE for some time I suspect it'll be fine.

Are you thinking of the issues people were having with running PPPoE on 20CN DSL where they were actually running PPPoEoA which caused some interesting issues?

This will be native PPPoE rather than a mass of encapsulation on encapsulation and supply a 1500 byte MTU to end users.

Was thinking of the fun when you start getting LLU providers involved who seem to randomly alter the MTU on their networks, and people confused over what to set on their PC.

Will have to drag myself to some BT demo centre to have a play one day I guess.
