I have a Netgear router version JWNR2000v2 on an internet with a PPPoE connection. If I got to basic settings and set "Login Required"=NO then configure my Static IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway Address then things work in that I have to then use my Laptop/Mobile to connect to the connection using the PPPoE Software and then connect to the internet.

However, if I say Login Required=YES, then the router only gives me a Static IP Field. I fill up this field. However, now the router cannot ping the default gateway. I am unable to find a way to setup the default gateway/Subnet mask and hence am stumped.

This used to work before(A technician who I can't use anymore had set it up) so am looking for any help regarding this.
