Telekom DSL with Ubiquiti EdgeRouter

These days i exchanged my aging FritzBox with a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite. Most of the configuration including IPsec is pretty straightforward. The only thing which took a little bit more time is the “Zwangstrennung” (daily shutdown) of the PPPoE connection from my provider. I do the daily reconnect for my connection at 4 am every day. To achieve that, a script and a daily call from cron is needed. Here is a article from the Ubiquiti Forum which helped a lot.
