What does "the router knows" mean?

You need to enable PPPoE pass through by the router's settings dialog.

However, that it worked in the past, doesn't mean that it is still
working, since network providers tend to migrate from one kind of
access to another.

I own a router that is theoretically able to provide PPPoE pass through,
but related to a change from ADSL to VDSL bitstream access one session
port and the used firmware version, the option is not available.

Does your router's firmware provide PPPoE pass through?
Isn't the network provider's access via one session port?
If so, is PPPoE pass through enabled by the router's settings?

With the wrong firmware, resp. one session port access the router's
PPPoE pass through feature is null and void.
