Re: What is PPPoE?

PPPoE stands for Point-to-Point Protocol Over Ethernet that is an IETF draft standard specifying how a computer interacts with a broadband modem (i.e. xDSL, cable, wireless, etc.) to achieve access to the high-speed data networks via a familiar PPP dialer such as 'Dial-Up Networking' user interface. PPPoE supports a broad range of existing applications and service including authentication, accounting, secure access and configuration management. There are some service providers running of PPPoE today. Before configuring PPPoE in the Prestige, please make sure your ISP supports PPPoE.

Pppoe password on wrt54g2

You can contact your Internet service provider for your PPPoE password.
The PPPoE password is generated and given by Internet service provider only. If you are using PPPoE connection then your Internet service provider should have password. Or they can reset and give you a new one.

I purchased e3000 linksys, i am nt sure if it support adsl or not ... how shall i know

if your DSL provider requires a PPPoE login it will support it. if your DSL does not require a PPPoE then just set up your linksys router for obtain a IP and disable PPPoE.
if you do need to PPPoE then use the login that your ISP provided to you.

My ISP uses PPPoE, and we are unable to connect our Wii, to be able to view Netflix. I need to know how to bypass the PPPoE so I don't get the error message from our Wii.

PPPoe shouldn't effect it. You can however ask your ISP to Bridge your port and then you will have to bridge your modem. This is one way to bypass. What is the error message that you are getting? What setup do you have ie: hardwired modem with wireless router, modem only, or combo modem and router in one device? If the error message that you are getting with the wii ask for your PPPoe info you should ask your ISP what your Username and password is for the PPPoe setup. Hope that helps

New dir 625 with DSL-cat5 connection and NO internet on status.

If it keeps on trying to connect to PPPoE, try not to use PPPoE setting. Use Automatic Configuration or DHCP connection type.

How do I get rid of the router using an automatic private address which keeps disconnecting?

the router will give you a private address , that is the functionality of the router, the problem is not with your connection, try to upgrade the latest firmware inthe router and reconfig the router in a pppoe mode that will fix your problem..

If your have software from your DSL provider such as "WinPoet" or "Enternet300" or you need to run a program (other than your browser) from your desktop to connect to the Internet, then you will need to configure your router for PPPoE.
