Immediate things to look at:
Wireshark understands all the protocols in question so get packet
captures of good and
bad sessions (as similar as you can) and see what is different.
tcpdump files so it's easy to capture).
also for fun you might look at the documentation for running mpd.. I
dont' remember if it
can do a pppoe SERVER but I vaguely remember that it can.
