Airport Express / PPPoE

Thought I'd share my (eventual) success getting an Apple AirPort Express to do all the routing and turning a modem-router into a modem only bridge.
This is in preparation for fibre when it gets activated at my exchange in a few months.
The modem-router is a Belkin N300. You have to set it up first, turn off the WiFi and then set it to "Modem Only (no Internet sharing)"  and make sure to use LLC not VC-MUX, at which point it restarts and you can never get the admin page back Sad
AirPort's WAN to any any old port on the modem.
On AirPort Setup Assistant enter username@plusdsl.net / password for the PPPoE settings.
