Well, I have my modem set to do the PPPoE, so I just grab the IP
address from the status page of the modem. Here is what I use:
(There may be a setup in the default config file for your router.)
## To obtain an IP address from FW status page (using fw-login,
use=fw, fw=192.168.0.1/, fw-skip='IP Address' # found after IP Address
The information is also available from
http://www.routerlogin.com/RST_status.htm but that requires a
username and password.
