Hi i need help with the DIR-869. Two days ago i bought it and i was going to set it up like a main router but every time i put the pppoe username and password it shows me that there is no connection even if i put an ethernet cable from my router to the computer it doesn't work and i have changed the password 3 times from the ISP but still it didn't work

* Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
* What region are you located?
Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations

* What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?
* Is ISP Modem/Service using Dynamic or Static WAN IP addressing?
* What ISP Modem service link speeds UP and Down do you have? Link> Speed Testing Sites
* Check cable between Modem and Router, swap out to be sure. Link> Cat6 is recommended.
* Check ISP MTU requirements, Cable is usually 1500, DSL is around 1492 down to 1472. Call the ISP and ask. Link>Checking MTU Values
* For DSL/PPPoE connections on the router, ensure that "Always ON" option is enabled.
* If the ISP modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems: Link>Double NAT and How NAT Works. Call the ISP and ask to see if the ISP modem can be bridged. To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged. If the modem can't be bridged then see if the modem has a DMZ option and input the IP address the router gets from the modem and put that into the modems DMZ. Also check the routers DHCP IP address maybe conflicting with the ISP modems IP address of 192.168.0.1. Check to see if this is the same on the ISP modem, and if modem can't be bridged, change the DIR router to 192.168.1.1 or .0.254.
