I am just starting out and have a UC500 to learn on. I am trying to connect to my ISP using PPPoE through an Alcatel Speedtouch Home DSL modem in relay mode, but when I try to configure the UC500 from the GUI ...the PPPoE settings are greyed out. Can you point me in the right direction?

I may have found it in the release notes ...

Symptom After the WAN interface on the Modify Internet Connection dialog is disabled and reenabled, the PPPoE check box becomes enabled again even though a firewall configuration is present. Because of this problem, Cisco Configuration Assistant disables the PPPoE check box if it detects a FW/NAT configuration under FA0/0.

Conditions None.

Workaround To configure PPPoE, you must first delete the current FW/NAT configuration, then configure PPPoE, and finally reconfigure FW/NAT by choosing dialer0 as the outside interface.
