    Hi,

    I just still don't know the advantages and disadvantages of pppoe and bridge mode....


    All you guys using bridge, why don't you just enlighten us as to what these are and why to use bridge or pppoe.

    There is no big deference between Bridge mode and PPPOE mode.
    In bridge mode your computer are detectable or connectable from the others computer in a Public Network, In bridge mode you are allwase in Public Network, as you are in Public Network so there is some security issue.

    In PPPOE mode you are in Private Network, you are in behind NAT. You are not connectable or visible from the Public Network.

    Well I have one doubt regarding pppoe mode...

    Is it possible to create a dialler for pppoe mode?

    I mean, when you configure modem in pppoe mode, you enter the username and password during setup. I think if we choose to keep it blank, then we can dial into pppoe mode just like bridge mode.

    Then it will become Bridge mode.

    "Bridged" "Dialer"mode preferred for auto schedulers ( free NU.) Also all ports are open. As you have to enter a password to connect , others cannot use your system.

    PPP/PPPoE "Always On" connection used for Portforwarding/ applications. System connects to Internet without above restriction.

    The reason is when the modem is set in PPPoE mode, it will use the internally stored user-id/pwd to login. This is of course blank and hence it cannot login.

    And if you create an external dialer application for the purpose, the dialer application will continue to get "line busy" signal.

    Most of the DSL providers name the underlying technology as PPPoE (point to point protocol over ethernet).

    Yes. Whenther bridge or PPPoE, the underlying technology is the same, i.e., PPPoE.
