Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
I have windows xp sp2, and would like to migrate to vista, please tell me how to connect to the internet using rasppoe connection.
The trick with XP also woks eith VISTA too.
Try the following in vista, you will succeed.
If you're using a RAS / PPPOE connection for Internet, and wish to automatically connect to your ISP at startup, you may use Rasdial utility which is built-in.
Usage: Open a Command Prompt window and type:
Rasdial <connectoid> "username" "password"
This would initiate a dial-up/PPPoE connection to your ISP.
You can create a batch file with the above parameters and place it in your Startup folder, so that vista dials to your ISP automatically at every startup.
If you don't prefer to enter the password in the batch file, use the following command-line (vista will prompt you for a password - secure)
Rasdial <connectoid> "username" *
NOTE: Type Rasdial.exe /? in the Command Prompt to learn more about this command, it's other parameters.
Hope my info helps you,
Thanx for using fixya,
