Possible Duplicate:
Cannot Connect To Internet In Automatic (pppoe) Mode Of Modem

My TP-LINK-8901 modem does not connect to internet with "always on" (automatic) connection. I have to put it in bridge mode and make a connection in Windows to connect to internet.

Also, there is no configuration problem.

What I did:

  1. Reset modem
  2. Update firmware

Is there any way to solve the problem myself, e.g. through hardware or software? I can't have it repaired because the warranty already expired.

Does your ISP use pppoe? if so, you need to enable that on your tplink and provide the pppoe user and password.
