    I have DSL that uses PPPoE via a local provider that goes through
    Verizon (in Manhattan). I have not been able to connect my Asante FR1004
    router to the DSL modem, however. How did you set up the NAT services in
    the router? Did you set the router to do Dynamic IP (in my case the
    PPPoE is handled by the DSL modem, which is both good and bad).

    Verizon may be expecting the MAC of your Mac. My Asanté FR allows you to
    copy your Mac's MAC and report it to Verizon.

    Use DHCP at each level towards Verizon and NAT at each level towards
    your Mac.
