Upgrading B1300 in mesh mode is never a smooth experience. Slave unit never gets updated.
Now today I upgraded B1300 manually to latest firmware without touching the unit and PPPoE connectivity is gone.
With messages like check the cable and check your ISP etc I am getting following status messages.
Oops! Cannot detect services.
If you are unable to dial for a long time and try many times have still not been successful. Please try the following methods:
1.Check if the Internet cable connection is normal.
2.Connect your PC to the ISP modem and make the PPPoE dialing for testing.
You shall contact your Internet Services Provider for help after both methods failed.

Plugin rp-pppoe.so loaded.
RP-PPPoE plugin version 3.8p compiled against pppd 2.4.7
pppd 2.4.7 started by root, uid 0
Tried both units with PPPoE authentication and it failed.
Yes from 3.027 to latest 3.102. There was also strange behavior for “Guest Network”. I could see tab for it when I was connecting the main unit by first pressing it for 5 seconds and after two seconds I was doing the same for the 2nd unit
But when I was pressing both units the same time for Mesh setup the guest network tab disappears after mesh is successfully established.
I got the same problem with MT300N-V2, the same exact messages in the log after upgrading firmware version from V3.025 to V3.102.
And after reverting formware back to V3.025, PPPoE is connecting without issues.
I have to B1300, one AR750s slate and one mt300n-v2, can send my selfie with all these devices
I have tried that every device on firmware upgrade (in case of B1300 after 3.027) PPPoE isn’t working. This means any feature that is introduced after 3.027 I can’t benefit from. After setting up stubby with NextDNS router loses connectivity 3-4 times a day and I restart it every time.
For the time being, pluging in MT300 into B1300 and setting up MT300 for PPPoE would be a good idea ? I want B1300 to be the main router.
I have B1300, AR750s and MT300N-v2, when any of these are upgraded to latest version PPPoE connectivity is gone and it is always “dialing” then.
The link in my last post isn’t pointing to the issue in Gl-inet routers?
I tried upgrading flashing with latest firmware (yet another time) and then following instructions in the link. As I lost Internet connectivity I had to put router in repeater mode to upgrade both plugins. But no upgrade are available in Gl-inet repository than the already available one (188.8.131.52). Uninstalled plugins first. No luck, no feedback from Gl-Inet.
