WAN Miniport PPPOE--Error 678

  1. I have a really weird problem that has been happening for about a week and I can not seem to fix it. It happened randomly one day and has held true since then. Nothing has been changed.
    I have Verizon DSL and one computer can connect to the internet fine, through a Linksys WRT54G...anyone of the three computers can. However, when a second computer attempts to connect the connection hangs up on Connecting to WAN Miniport PPPOE and eventually fails with an Error 678.
    Things I've attempted to fix the problem:
    Called Verizon and they say the line tests are perfect.
    Switched the router from a Linksys Switch (EZXS88W) to a Linksys Wireless Router (WRT54G).
    Got a new modem from Verizon.
    Checked all computers for spyware.

    No avail. any help would be great but I'm getting to my wits end!
    Thank you.

    It sounds like you do not have DHCP configured. Go back to your chosen routers manual and read that section carefully
