Hi guys! I desperately need some help.... :(

I bought a TP-Link TL-WR740R Router, the setup went smoothly, I could connect to the internet and set up wifi connection. But after a few hours, I accidentally unplugged the ethernet cable from the router, and since then, I can't seem to make the router work. (I obviously plugged it back in.)
Setup says I have a problem with the WAN connection.
I tried rebooting, reseting, reconfiguring, cloning the MAC address.
The router is sending packages, but receiving none.
How could this happen just by unplugging the cable for a second???? :(

Perhaps you can plug the computer into the modem and make sure the modem is working properly with the computer. after that, reset the router and reconfigure to see whether it will work or not.

Why do you configure PPPOE as router's WAN connection?
I guess you are using an ADSL modem. So when you computer is hooked up with your modem directly, do you need to dial up with your username and password on the PC to access internet?
If yes, using PPPOE as WAN connection is correct. You may check if you have correctly entered the username and password provided by ISP.
If you don't need to dial up on the PC, you need to configure Dynamic IP as WAN connection. And make sure the LAN IP of router is in different IP range as your ADSL modem. For example, if your ADSL modem router uses 192.168.1.1, do change the tplink router LAN IP to 192.168.2.1.
