I am debugging a connectivity issue with my internet connection provider. I have a PPPoE type of connection.
I am working on configuring my router to connect over PPPoE connection. Please note that I am re-configuring the same router which worked for the same connection so its not a router issue.
I tried to connect the WAN line to my laptop and tried to configure pppd (running Arch Linux)
What I am trying to understand is if the LAN interface should already have IP before I authenticate using PPPoE? I am not sure how PPPoE works, whether it gets an IP over normal DHCP and establishes a session using PPPoE or getting the IP is also part of PPPoE handshake?
Currently, my LAN interface does not get any IP, before or after using ppp dial-up. I am trying to figure out if the WAN connection itself is down or is it just my misconfiguration.
on ppp dial-up I am getting following error,
pppd: Timeout waiting for PADO packets pppd: Unable to complete PPPoE Discovery
