DSL-AX82U - PPPoA not working


New Around Here
Using any of the official AsusWRT firmwares, including the latest it is not possible to connect to the internet if you are using ADSL and PPPoA with the DSL-AX82U.

If anyone from Asus is reading this, there is a patch here which has been applied to gnuton's DSL fork of AsusWRT-Merlin which fixes the problem - I've also tested it on the against the source code of FW version and it works. It would be nice to get this fixed in the official firmware!

Just a dumb question: by PPPoA you mean PPP over ATM?
I almost forgot that A meant. It's been a technology dead for 15 (?) years now.

And if your answer is yes, can you share carrier's name? I'm curios who would be using ATM those days.

It is PPP over ATM. I'm on an old ADSL2 circuit at the moment, and my carrier (Manx Telecom) still use PPPoA for those, but PPPoE for VDSL and newer. I think British Telecom do something similar too.
