Hi .. I have the same modem router and was working fine with my Al shamil when they used PPPoA connection type. I used it for last one year.
This year I disconnected my old connection and took a new 512kbps connection. To my surprise, etisalat changed connection type to PPPoE. Now this modem/router drops internet connection every two hours.. Can someone please help?

I have Netgear (DSL modem + 4 port routers + secure wireless G + VPN + firewall + dynamic DNS) from Carrefour for about 260 AED (could be a little cheaper at Al Ain computer plaza in Bur Dubai). It has good review on cnet. Setup is very easy and I don't have problem so far. Even I upgraded myself the firmware downloaded from Netgear site.
