PPPoE "Static" IP address on a Dialer Interface?

Hi All,

I have a Bellsouth circuit that was assigned a Static pppoe IP Address. "Persistent IP" (same one each time after authenticating) may be a better way of saying it. I want to assign this to my 1710 but BellSouth has some stupid %static statement that they append to the end of the pppoe username and say it won't work as the pppoe username on a Cisco. I can get an IP address via pppoe consistently with my username and pasword using the extension to the pppoe username but it is different every time. Can I assign the "Static" IP address they have given me to the Dialer interface as if I had applied to the ethernet?

Re: PPPoE "Static" IP address on a Dialer Interface?

I don't think Bellsouth is right, unless something has recently changed. I have configured a 1700 router using the %static in the username and it worked. Have you tried configuring the router with that username yet?
