I have a Zyxel P-660HW-T1 v3 ADSL2+ Wireless Router. I have a PPPoE broadband connection. There is a CPE on the rooftop. An RJ45 cable comes down from the CPE to my house. I need to have wireless connection to my smartphone and laptop.
To achieve this, I converted the Router to an AP. Wired connection works fine. But wireless doesn't work. I can connect to the AP but not to internet.
The IP address to get to the configuration page of CPE is 192.168.0.254
Steps followed to convert the Router to AP:
- Disable DHCP
- Disable NAT
- Set IP address of ADSL router to 192.168.0.1 (default was 192.168.1.1)
- Set Connection type to PPPoE. Enter username & pass. Leave all other values to their default ones.
- Set SSID and security for wireless.
- Reboot router
- Connect RJ45 cable from computer to a LAN port in router and the CPE RJ45 cable to another LAN port in router.
Below is the CPE info page
Below are images of setup pages in the Zyxel router.

Update: From the behavior of the router, it seems it is working like an unmanaged switch. It is actually not using the PPPoE login credentials at all. If I connect my desktop and laptop to it wired, I have to dial in (use the ISP login credentials) one of the machines to connect to the internet. And as it is PPPoE, I then cannot dial in the other machine to connect to internet....exactly like an unmanaged switch.
