hey all,
i've been running my soekris box with openbsd to connect to my dsl router 
(which is in bridged mode) for my main 'net connect. i've been having 
*serious* connectivity problems, so bad in fact I've got a cron running 
every five min's to check my pppoe interface. if it's down it bring's it 
back up (does the whole ppp authentication dance). yuck! i was assuming that 
in kernel pppoe would be better than using a userland implementation. i'm 
hoping that i'm still correct, my first assumption is that covad sucks and 
so does my dsl router. but before i waste a night on the phone with covad, 
has anyone had any stability issues with 3.7 and in kernel pppoe setups? i'm 
using a real vanilia setup...pretty much strait from the man page. nothing 
crazy going on in pf land either...some filtering and redirection.....
