I get only things like this (without -v or -vv):
09:17:56.744957 PPPoE PADI [Service-Name] [Host-Uniq 0x0400000007000000]

Like 3 of these lines. Just that. No PADO and nothing else whatsoever.

Yes, I think I can google too. About that button, I don't ever have to press it until I really fuck up something in the settings. I did exactly what was told there to get the web interface page, but I got none. Now I'm gonna try that FreeBSD method.

I mean

LAN]--[Microsoft Windows XP w/ routing]--[Dialcom ADSL Bridge]--[line //WORKS
LAN]----[Corega BAR SD hardware router]--[Dialcom ADSL Bridge]--[line //WORKS
LAN]----------[FreeBSD software router]--[Dialcom ADSL Bridge]--[line //SUCKS :)

What does FreeBSD suck at?
