    I am trying to get my D-Link DSL-300G+ modem to work with my ADSL
    connection. I have it connected to a standalone PC via an ethernet
    connection. The ADSL and Ethernet LEDs are showing constant green - which is
    good. However the connection status is "Peer abort".

    Does anyone know what this means? It is a PPPoE connection.

    I know the ADSL account works becasue I can use another USB ADSL modem but
    not this D-Link ethernet modem.

    My ISP is ESatBT in Ireland.

  2. Hi Anthony,

    I don't now much about ADSL in Ireland, but I can tell you that all the
    major ISP's in England work on PPPoA not PPPoE.
    Try changing the setting on your modem to PPPoA and you might have some

    (PPPoE - Point-to-Point Protocol Over Ethernet, PPPoA - Point-to-Point Over
    (ATM - Asynchronus Transfer Mode, the technology that lets data and
    telephone travel over the same line whilst not letting any one data type hog
    the line)

    Hope this helps.

    I wish people would stop spouting this rubbish.
    PPPoA/PPPoE is dependent on the exchanges which
    BT upgraded long ago. I have had PPPoE running
    with Demon and AAISP.

  4. I have sorted the problem. The authentication method should have been chap
    and the modem default is pap.
