PPPoE connection works when wired, but not on wireless

Postby jSepia » Mon Sep 06, 2010 16:56

I have a PPPoE connection which I access through a wireless router. In Windows, the connectionn works fine both through the LAN and through wireless. However, in Sabayon, I can only make it work with the wire connected (otherwise it doesn't even show up in the tray icon).

The wireless connection itself is configured correctly; it has the right encryption and settings. The problem lies in the PPPoE connection.

I also tried using rp-pppoe to configure and access the connection. It seems to connect, and it even gets an IP, but I can't browse any websites or ping any hostnames. I thought it was a DNS problem, but it happens no matter which DNSes I use.

Here's my ifconfig output in case that helps.

Isn't the PPoE connection usually negotiated by software in the Router itself for this kind of configuration (even when wired)?

Also, what tools are you using to get your wireless going? Networkmanager (the default)? WiCD? Other?
