Timeout waiting for PADO packets

Hi all,

I was trying to replace the Hub One with another modem/router combo of my choice, running LEDE (formerly OpenWRT), but I can not connect to the internet.

From the logs, I see that the error is:

 

Fri Jan 26 10:34:56 2018 daemon.warn pppd[3332]: Timeout waiting for PADO packets
Fri Jan 26 10:34:56 2018 daemon.err pppd[3332]: Unable to complete PPPoE Discovery
 
I see that the same problems with PADO are constantly discussed on Plusnet forum and they all are down to Plusnet/BT hardware issues. Refer for example: https://community.plus.net/t5/Fibre-Broadband/Timeout-waiting-for-PADO/m-p/1475992
 
I have raised a ticket, but I was hoping someone could perhaps suggest some solution? 
For example, could spoofing the Hub One's MAC address help?
 
Thanks and regards
