i just bought one of these : asus rtn13u
i brought it home and BANG ... complete dissapointment. i plugged everything in Power , the ethernet conection provided by my isp RDS ( PPPoE) ,and my desktop pc to it. it just wouldn't see anything conected to the RJ-45 ports. My newer Pc (emachines e732z ) sees the wiered conection to the router and i can configuer it (both trought wiered or wi fi conection). i can set SSID , pasword , encription method ... etc. i can also connect to its menu (by its ip 192.168.1.1 on the case) and set up everything exept for the most important thing .. the PPPoE conection. why? . well beacause it wont see it in the first place. Doctor Surf ( really annoying dude) says thet there is none conected .. cable unplugged ..
Reseting and reconfiguring anything wouldn't help so i took it back to the vendor.
The tec support guy over there just plugged it in conected it between his computer and the shops static ip netword and it worked perfectly.
Back home same problems stated above.
.... i got no idea what to do with the damn thing.

So you have a PPPoE connection? Did you set this up on your new router - did you put in your creds?
Did you reset your modem (power cycle) when you connected new device, ie your new asus router?
Switching connection from wan to lan port on your new router -- WTF, that makes NO sense at ALL to do that. If you wanted to use your new router as just an access point - ok you could use a lan port. But you want this new router to NAT right?
"a split betwenn internet (and phone)"
You sure this "funny little box outside" is not a router?? On your OLD router (what make and model?) What does it have for its WAN IP?? Is it private? 192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x, 172.16-31.x.x? Somewhere on its UI it should show you this info.
What is the model number of the "funny little box outside"
When you connect your new router to your cable -- do you get lights on the wan port?

Just checking, before you bought the rtn13u how did you have the modem plugged in? Was it plugged in directly into your computer? Or to a network switch? Did you or your ISP re-configure anything on the modem after you bought the rtn13u?
Taking a guess, it sounds like your modem isn't in bridge mode & still has DHCP enabled. This means:
a. You shouldn't plug the modem into the rtn13u's WAN port, it won't work.
b. You shouldn't plug the modem into the rtn13u's LAN port b/c both rtn13u & modem have DHCP enabled, this won't work either. (it might work for a bit, but then random network devices will lose internet whenever they try to renew IP addresses later)
To fix try one of these:
1. . In the rtn13u turn off DHCP & then plug the modem into one of the rtn13u's LAN ports. (note that you may want to temporarily set a static IP address for your computer when doing this)
2. Call your ISP, tell them you want to set up your modem in bridge mode, & turn off DHCP on the modem. Then plug the modem into the rtn13u's WAN port & log into the rtn13u to configure the PPPoE connection's settings.
You should really be going with #2 if you were planning on using the rtn13u to share internet with everything else in your network. But if you're planning on using the rtn13u strictly for wireless & nothing else, then #1 is probably all you need to do.
