Question Router in bridge mode, fc6


I have fedora core 6 installed and xp. On xp i use my
router in bridge mode because my isp doesn't support
PPPoE mode. How can i configure my router in linux
to also work in bridge mode??? I heard of some 'bridge-utils-1.2'....
I've downloaded the package but i don't know how to install it...
Does somebody know how i can use this package or is there
another way to configure my router???(D-Link 584T)

it's your router that's bridging right... not XP or linux... bridge-utils are to help linux itself be the brdge device... presumably you just need to use a standard PPPoE client on linux e.g. rp-pppoe from yum in fedora

Question

Allright i've installed it manually(konsole
way) and i've typed 'pppoe-start' and it says
that it is running, but my router is still
configured in bridge mode and fc6 wont let
me access it via the browser, i don't know why...
On xp i still connect via bridge mode, but
how can i on linux set it up to bridge mode????
(Or configure my router for pppoe...)

ps: sorry for the noobish questions but i'm really
new to linux and don't know anything....
