This MIGHT save me one day..... "Found the soloution, when using iburst, drop the MTU of the other computers to 1321, and everything works great, there is also a way to do this in the kernel of the internet sharing machine."
And PLEASE remember, if you sharing your connection on your LAN, drop your MTU. To enable clamping in both the RP or PPPd PPPoE clients, add the following line to your:
# - If you have a computer acting as a gateway for a LAN, choose "1412". # The setting of 1412 is safe for either setup, but uses slightly more # CPU power. # CLAMPMSS=1321
Look at this site for nice tips like auto starting pppoe: http://www.akadia.com/services/pppoe_iptables.html
Do you have PPPoE installed? also try pppoe-setup http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=1&chap=3
Hi I'm having issues with iBurst and pppoe, My connection keeps on dropping. I have checked to see if persist is added to my /etc/ppp/peers/dsl-provider and it's there .... My issue is that the connection drops but does not reconnect ....

Due to excessive DoS attacks and worm traffic, the following ports will be restricted: tcp 445, 135, 139, 1433, 1434; udp 1433, 1434. Furthermore, peer to peer traffic is shaped on most iBurst packages. SMTP relaying on port TCP 25 is restricted to authorised SMTP relays only.
In Gentoo you put something like this in your /etc/conf.d/net:
config_ppp0=("ppp") link_ppp0="eth1" plugins_ppp0=("pppoe") pppd_ppp0=("defaultroute" "usepeerdns" "demand") username_ppp0="<myusername>" password_ppp0="<mypassword>" mtu_ppp0="1352"
just emerge rp-pppoe and hook up the iburst modem to the pc via ethernet. then run adsl-setup follow the prompts and you should be up and running in no time
