Hello Jose,

recently this feature PPPoE client on a LAN subif has been introduced.

If you have a LAN switch in the middle and the ADSL modem LAN port is connected to a switch port that is in access mode and in Vlan10 this setup can work.

A Broadband NAS could also be able to process PPPoE that have a vlan-tag:

ethernet header_p1 (DA,SA) -- 802.1Q header --- PPPoE header--

Hope to help
