Interesting. I got my DataOne installation in early February, and
they supplied a UT-300R (predecessor to the one you've got). It
required absolutely no configuration. I use RP-PPPoE on a RouterLinux
box on my LAN to connect to it using adsl-start, etc.

There is no such LED on the UT-300R, only 'Link' and 'Data'.

Hmm, should be some kind of encapsulation to allow PPPoE on the LAN
side - what are the options?
