DSL with NO modem - Router will not resolve with ISP..

DSL with NO modem - Router will not resolve with ISP..

DSL with NO modem - Router will not resolve with ISP..

Router: WRT54GS - V.4
ISP: Bellsouth

I have an issue connecting my router to my ISP, though it just may be a setting issue.  I am familiar with this router & have had no issues with it while my ISP was Comcast.  I just moved to a new neighborhood & my available ISP is Bellsouth.. This DSL service is slightly different than previous service I have had through Bellsouth, this connection does not require a DSL modem.  I connect via CAT-5 jack already “linked to fiber” (per Bellsouth tech).  I currently have Internet connectivity via my network card directly to CAT-5 jack… But I cannot get the router to resolve with the ISP (Cannot request IP/PPoE address from ISP).   I have tried all things suggested from the FAQ’s including:

·    Yes the settings are on PPoE & the User name & password are correct.
·    Yes both cables work
·    Went though power down cycle multiple times..

Interesting thing is the routers orange button & wan button are lit…  

Due to the fact that I have no modem, is there a specific setting that I need to alter either on the router or my PC?

RE: DSL with NO modem - Router will not resolve with ISP..

Do not use the PPoE choice on the router and choose DHCP instead.

You might want to set the LAN-side ip of the router to Subnet
