OK, recently I posted this question; by now I guess I've got my answer.

So here are the steps I followed to test the KERNEL LEVEL PPPOE and the issues I had to resolve.

1. Setup.

When you read about it on Debian PPPoE Wiki page, it seems you need `pppoeconf` script or some other stuff to run it...
So wherever I'd go, there's never a simple and clear exhaustive explanation. So I figured, why not write one now?

OK, the kernel mode PPPoE setup...

Thanks Jeremy!!!

I have changed my username from 'leopard' to 'lupusarcanus'. 'lupusarcanus' is Latin for 'Arcane Wolf', which I absolutely love. Just don't mistake it for the disease!

There were many reasons for changing it, one I didn't really like 'leopard' and two I have unified my internet persona, which was hard to do but nearly accomplished. I really like it all-in-all.

If it makes it easier you can just call me Andrew. I don't mind.

[UPDATE: Sent an email to Broadcom about it, including my patch, and the answer was that their internal version works fine but they'll only release a patch if many people complain about it)

(If you don't want to read about the problem and just want the patched driver go to the end of this post)
I've been using Linux, and particularly Slackware, for sometime and I've seen my share of problems with hardware support. Things definitely work a great deal easier than before but there's...

I've been considering learning it. Lots of great info, cross-platform and popular. What is to not like about that?

Don't throw away that old router yet (especially if it has dd-wrt or the like). The reason why I say that it allows you to set up an intranet (private network). Why would you need such a thing. Say you want to set up several computers, but did not want the network traffic to hit your internet network and slow it down. For example a gaming network. We are now using an intranet for the home automation network. The real world does not need to see or have access to what we are up to either.
