Yep you're spot on mate. I've seen this oddity for years off and on.
Nice note taking btw... it's a bit of a spin out going back and finding these little tit bits... it's scary how much we forget!

Maybe my dim memory was about Drayteks after all :-)

I just trawled through some of my old tech notes, and found this
slightly cryptic note to myself:

"It may be superstition, but it seems that 'PPPoE/PPPoA Client' must be
enabled for the device to work properly, even though the device itself
is not doing the authentication etc."

For whatever that's worth. The 120 and 130 are pretty close relatives.
