Hello Frayser,

Any advantages by using this method ? connecting directly to the R1 through pppoe?

It's not so much an advantage, more a requirement for certain connection types. If you have Internet access but you haven't got PPPoE enabled, you don't need it.

I was thinking more that it's less routers in the mix especially since my isp router doesn't have a bridge mode so my r1 is in the dmz but my internet connection is only ever going to be as good as my worse component so even if I have a perfect connection through my r1 it is still got to go through the isp router which may negatively effect the connection

Keep in mind that with PPPoE enabled on the R1 that the overall bandwidth speed is limited. So if you have higher speeds than ~120mbps then I would recommend keeping your existing setup and you'll still have a good connection like that. ISP router is just routing everything straight to the router (assuming its' WiFi, UPnP/port forwarding is disabled).
