Attempting to use PPPoE on PS4

Hello, quick question regarding PPPoE. I'm attempting to get a NAT type 1 on my PS4 console by connecting via PPPoE. I have my username and password, and try to connect, but the PS4 always fails to resolve an IP address. I'm sure the username and password are correct because I use them if I need to change something on my router via Telnet. Has anyone else had issues with trying to connect via PPPoE? Thanks.

If you wish to use PPPoE, is your PS4 connected directly to a VDSL modem such as the ones provided by Openreach ?

Yep, it's hooked up to one of these from Amazon;

The PS4 works perfectly fine otherwise, but I have a NAT type 2. I'd rather just connect via PPPoE if that's possible really.
