Lisi,
thanks much. I technically agree, since your conclusions are 
perfectly right.

However:
I simply cannot imagine that Steven installed ppoe to 
directly use the modem.;-) So I placed a bet on him using 
the "router", when saying he was using the "modem", whatever 
that means.

Kind regards
Eberhard
