My RUTX08 was upgraded to RUTX_R_00.07.01.2 and now the PPPoE PAP/CHAP username & password are not saved, and it won't connect. I have rolled back to a known-good firmware, but I was curious if this is just me having the issue. Is there a workaround to use RUTX_R_00.07.01.2 and store the username & password by another means? Thank you.

This is a known bug introduced with firmware version 07.01.2. We're currently working on a fix to patch up the issue. 

If you'd like to continue using this firmware version and make PPPoE work, you may try to set the PPPoE values using "uci" commands via CLI (SSH). Please note, however, that any change to the PPPoE interface in the WebUI will result in username/password values becoming empty again.

The relevant uci PPPoE configuration commands should be the following:

uci set network.<PPPoE_Interface_Name>.username='yougotthisfromyour@isp.com'

uci set network.<PPPoE_Interface_Name>.password='yourpassword'

uci commit network && /etc/init.d/network reload

Make sure to enter the name of the interface without the <> brackets.

Best regards,
