    Just installed both but my question pertains to the router set-up. Should I be using dynamic IP Address or PPoE with I set the router specs with Sprint's DSL via Earthlink? When I ask Earthlink, I get the following response...

    Question: Do you require Dynamic IP address or PPoE?
    Response: we are using PPOE and you give a dynamic ip address each time you connect to our server

    I am really not sure, thoughts or advice.

    Tks,
    statman

    I remember having to setup up a Belkin router and having to input the same info...i have earthlink dsl and i guess what u need to select is the pppoe (point-to-point protocol over ethernet),....this will tell the router that it requieres a user name and password to be able to log into the earthlink server via a dynamic ip....anyways, i hope this helped...advice- make sure you follow the manual step by step....good luck! :cool: :D
