WAN Configuration   2-13
The Receive RIP pop-up menu controls the reception and transmission of Routing Information Protocol 
(RIP) packets on the WAN por t. The default is Both v1 and v2. 
A Transmit RIP pop-up menu is hidden if NAT is enabled.
Routing Information Protocol (RIP) is needed if there are IP routers on other segments of your Ethernet 
network that the Netopia Router needs to recognize. Set to “Both” (the default) Netopia Firmware Version 
8.6.1 will accept information from either RIP v1 or v2 routers. Alternatively, select Receive RIP and select 
v1, v2, or v2 MD5 Authentication from the popup menu. With Receive RIP set to “v1,” the Netopia 
Router’s Ethernet por t will accept routing information provided by RIP packets from other routers that use 
the same subnet mask. Set to “v2,” the Netopia Firmware Version 8.6.1 will accept routing information 
provided by RIP packets from other routers that use different subnet masks.
For more information on v2 MD5 Authentication, see 
PPPoE/PPPoA Autodetection
Beginning with Firmware Version 8.5, if you are using PPP, and you have selected PPPoE as the Underlying 
Encapsulation, you can fur ther enable the ability to connect automatically to your ISP’s central office equipment 
whether they are using PPP over Ethernet or PPP over ATM.
This feature applies only to ATM-based WAN connections.
Select PPPoE Options and press Return.
The PPPoE Options screen appears.
Toggle PPPoA Autodetect to On.
If your ISP is using PPPoE, the connection will be made normally. If your ISP is using PPPoA, when the 
Netopia Gateway detects this, it will automatically switch to PPPoA transparently.
Return to the Add Connection Profile screen by pressing Escape.
