Dunno. I just followed the instructions from YahooBB which said to set
the router to use DHCP to get the IP from them, and it works as
expected. It's a beautiful thing when following the instructions
actually works - saved me from having to learn the difference between
PPPoE and DHCP...

Also, I use static IPs on the LAN side, which the manual did not
recommend IIRC, but also works fine.
