Thanks - that's what I thought (Bridged mode - IP).
Can I enquire if I should be seeing IP addresses in the PTM1.101 fields once I have successful authentication? I can see IP addresses in the PTM1.301 field (188.8.131.52 etc.) which I assume are BT management systems but none in the PTM1.101 fields. Both PTM fields are showing "connected".
Modem is sync'ed to the street cab at 25Mbps down / 6Mbps up (800m away on aluminium cable!) on a 6dB noise margin
I can't get the router or any PPoE connected PC (XP, Win7, Ubuntu) to authenticate.
Openreach are giving Zen the run around and keep trying to send an Engineer to my home to inspect my end whilst I suspect that the problem has been provisioning or an E side fault all along.
The cabinet recently had some extra capacity added and I wonder if this is the part that isn't working.
Anyone out there with any influence within Openreach to bang some heads together as Zen are not having much success over the past fortnight
Going by telephone calls made by the original Openreach Engineer (who installed the modem) to his supervisor, I despair as they appear to be in a state of chaos in this part of the UK at the moment. He even admitted to me that my provisioning was not even ready for the scheduled day of my upgrade.
