I set up a second-hand AE base unit to connect to the Internet through a DSL modem. It worked fine but the status light was always amber. I succeeded in updating the firmware, but it no longer connected to the Internet. I did a factory reset of the AEBS and did the setup again. Now when I try to connect, the connection to the AEBS is fine but I always get the message "looking for PPPoE Host" until it eventually says that a PPPoE host cannot be found. System Preferences/Network tells me that I am connected to the Internet via Airport and the the connection is OK!

I am getting so frustrated! I have tried many things including deselecting the built-in Ethernet setting "Connect automatically when needed" as advised by Apple [artnum 107530].

Anyone any idea what I might be doing wrong?
QUOTE Thanks
