    hi, I was tried setting up my router with the easy setup assistant and it wasn’t working. So I tried using your method and when I pressed auto detect on the connection type, it said ‘ppoe’ and asked for a username and password. As far as I know, my isp uses static ip and I have to put in the ip address, default gateway, dns server….manually. What do I do ?
