ADSL connection query (technical)

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by The Other Guy, Jan 1, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    I have been using a DSE router which allocated my external IP address
    via DHCP, but I have another router which I'd now like to use instead,
    but need to keep control over incoming/outgoing data.

    This router supports multiple Internet connections, and has the ability
    for me to specify which of the connection should be used to deliver
    locally bound packets, including the 'Orcon' PPPoA connection I set up.

    Does this mean that I can set up a PPPoE server on my network and
    connect the router to it, then specify the interneal PPPoE server as the
    destination for incoming packets?

    Thanks,

    The Other Guy

    No. The router itself performs the function of routing incoming packets.
