RV042 PPPoA via bridged thompson 595v7


I  have recently purchased the rv042, I have two broadband connections  both PPPoA, the first has a static IP and connects with the rv042 no  problem (via a Thompson 585v7 in bridge mode).

The  second has a dynamic IP. I have set the Thompson 585 'modem' in to  bridge mode and when I connect via Ethernet to a PC, the PC is given an  external bridge mode working correctly.

In  the rv042 I set the WAN2 connection type as PPPoE, however the rv043  requires a username and password and my ISP does not use one.

When  I click save setting on the rv042 the display is updated with some  characters in the password field, even though I left them blank.

I have followed the full procedure from this article:

expect entering the username and password as there isn't one.

My ISP's settings can be seen here:

RV042 firmware version:

Thompson routers both have latest firmware.

Any support with this issue would be greatly appreciated.
