I'm attempting to connect a FritzBox 7390 to a NBN connection. I've setup LAN1 as the WAN Port. I've put in the PPPoE Details, but it will not connect. In the log, I see the error:
PPPoE Timeout. pado: hostuniq mismatch
If I connect my computer directly to the same ethernet cord (That is WAN), and setup a PPPoE connection, with the same credentials, it connects OK and I can browse the internet, no dramas at all.
Firmware upgrade is the latest.
Exetel say the problem is not at their end, but they did tell me that from about 1000hrs yesterday the connection dropped around 20 times.
Some more information – not sure if any of it helps
Interestingly, even with the router disconnected the "LAN connection" for my Realtek RTL8168/8111 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC in Network Connections (WinXP) shows that it has limited connectivity.
Also, it has been a while since I have had any issues with this connection so I was surprised to see a second IP address for the LAN Connection that is what looks like an IPv6 address (I assume).
The "internet" light on the FritzBox is not on – it was/should be

Iotvic, thanks for that - a worthwhile website - however no information on my issue.
Any ideas on how i can do some more diagnostics?
".......a NBN connection."
I've never heard of that type of broadband connection. Are you in the UK?
SecretSquirrel, looks like NBN may be from Oz Click Here
Exetel PTY are based in Sydney.
"SecretSquirrel, looks like NBN may be from Oz"
That's what I suspect too but I was waiting for explicit confirmation.
Sorry all - definitely Oz - having trouble solving with local help so I broadened the search...
NBN = National broadband network - fibre backbone to the home with an opto-converter (I assume) combined with a modem of some sort at the home.
That is then connected to a router
"Sorry all - definitely Oz..."
I think you'll find most (if not all) the regular helpers here are in the UK. I for one wouldn't know where to start with your NBN configuration issues.
I think you'll stand a much better chance of success with the Australian forum you've also posted on.
