PPPoE Connection Drops streaming video on my Linksys WRK54G
So I just set up my Linksys WRK54G Version 1.1 to handle my PPPoE connection, meaning I entered the username and password assigned to me via my ISP. It works for a bit and then seems drop the connection all together. When this occurs, I cannot even ping the router ( I have to unplug the AC Adaptor and then plug it in, inorder for the connection to pick up again. It seems when I try to access streaming video from a certain site (http://www.mtv2.com/#videoPremiere/1552982) and I have PPPoE setup via my router, the connection drops. If I change the setting to "Obtain an IP Automatically" and send my PPPoE credentials through my Windows XP client all is well. No issues what so ever.

I called Linksys and they had me try setting my MTU to 1400 but that did nothing. I have the most recent firmware as well. He then said that I will need to call my ISP and increase the bandwidth on my modem to get it to work (connect directly to my modem).

I have since reset the router, downloaded the newest episode of "Heroes" and fired up You Tube and watched a few streaming videos while grabbing the torrent. Everything looked ok.

I then went back to the MTV2 link I posted above (http://www.mtv2.com/#videoPremiere/1552982) and clicked play. At the same time I set up a continuous ping to the router. Sure enough, the connection dropped completely. Unplug the AC Adaptor to the router for 1 second, plug it back in and all is well. I am truly stumped here.

Is the issue perhaps a port issue with the video I am trying to stream from MTV2? It seems regular stress tests work ok.

PS - It seems someone else was having a similar problem here: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/rema...?hilite=wrk54g
