TP-Link WR841N Router
Recently our ISP asked us to change our Router 'Wan Connection Type' from 'Dynamic IP' to 'PPoe/ PPoE Russia'. Should I be suspicious? I was unable to connect to Netflix and they said this would fix the problem (and it has). When the same problem has occured previously, Netflix Support suggested that the ISP flshed thier DNS Cache. we passed on the message and the problem was fixed.
I live in Rural Ireland and the Internet Services are not great. Currently we have 15 Mbps unlimited DL for a monthly subscription. The main problem is dropouts, Listening to a Podcast is frustrating as you have to keep relocating the place in the stream where the connection was lost.
Anyhow, I have tried to read up on PPPoE Vs Dynamic and the pros and cons but to be honest its all a bit confusing. What are your thoughts? Is there any advantage of one over the other?
