My new ADSL line is now enabled, I can finally use my Netgear DM111Pv2 to use to the Internet. My ISP has told me a big surprise : I don't need to use a login and a password to connect to the Internet, then I must use the RFC 2684 bridging mode.
It works pretty fine on the ADSL modem's side, but I've spent one night trying to figure out how to connect to the Internet through this modem. I only have a Fonera 2.0n and a computer running Gentoo Linux.
I've been trying to use the br2684ctl utility with brctl on my Gentoo, first I've configured my kernel in that way :
CONFIG_PPP=y CONFIG_PPP_BSDCOMP=y CONFIG_PPP_DEFLATE=y # CONFIG_PPP_FILTER is not set CONFIG_PPP_MPPE=y # CONFIG_PPP_MULTILINK is not set CONFIG_PPPOATM=y CONFIG_PPPOE=y CONFIG_PPP_ASYNC=y CONFIG_PPP_SYNC_TTY=y [...] CONFIG_ATM=y CONFIG_ATM_CLIP=y CONFIG_ATM_CLIP_NO_ICMP=y CONFIG_ATM_LANE=y CONFIG_ATM_MPOA=y CONFIG_ATM_BR2684=y # CONFIG_ATM_BR2684_IPFILTER is not set
And I still get these messages :
cirus nais # br2684ctl -b -c 0 -e 0 -a 8.35 br2684ctl: Interface "nas0" created sucessfully br2684ctl: Communicating over ATM 0.8.35, encapsulation: LLC br2684ctl: Fatal: failed to connect on socket; No such device
The brctl utility keeps telling me "Invalid argument" each time I try to add the nas0 interface into my bridge, I'm honestly hoping I'm doing wrong.
I've been following this README carefully and this tutorial on setting up a PPPoE connection with Gentoo, but the PPPoE interface just tries to start, and nothing special related to PPP happens, I can't see the interface when I do
So, I'm asking you if there's something huge I've been missing since the beginning ! Maybe I should wait to buy a new router fully supporting the RFC2684 bridging mode, but I'm more interested in setting up this mode on my Fonera 2.0n and even my Raspberry Pi !
