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.

What to insert for PPPoE Service name to connect to internet

PPPoE stands for Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet, it's basically authentication for ISPs that use Usernames and Passwords to get you connected to the internet. If your ISP uses PPPoE you'll have to change the 360's settings to connect to the Xbox Live service.

Your PPPoE info should have been given to you when you signed up for your internet service(some ISPs even print the info somewhere on your hub/modem), otherwise you'll have to call them up and get the info from them. It's also important to know that if you're ISP doesn't use PPPoE you should leave these settings blank on your 360 or it won't connect.

Since you haven't connected to the live yet I'll assume you're still on the older dashboard so it should go like this:

1. Move to the System area of the Xbox dashboard.
2. Select Network Settings.
3. Select Edit Settings.
4. On the Additional Settings tab, select PPPoE Settings.
5. Use the on-screen keyboard to enter the PPPoE information that was provided to you by your ISP.
6. Select Done.
7. Select Apply and Test when you are prompted to do this.

Hi Just trying to set up the Xbox360. Under netwok connect it is asking for "service name", what is this? I know who my service provider is, but don't know what it's asking for...

Hello Bren,
You can leave it blank, no problem!
Additional info, comes from Microsoft: "Some ISPs do not require that you enter a PPPoE server name on the PPPoE Settings screen. Contact your ISP to verify whether they require that you enter a PPPoE server name. If your ISP does not require that you enter a PPPoE server name, leave the Service Name box on the PPPoE Settings screen blank."

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

WHEN IT ASKS FOR PPPoE what does it want.

What is my PPPoE username and password?
Your PPPoE username and password is the same information that you chose when you placed your order. This is the same username and password that you use to login to Your Account or check your email. Please remember that you must enter your username in the form of [email protected], when you're configuring your PPPoE software.

Asa 5505 firewall problem

PPPoE is not supported when failover is configured on the security appliance, or in multiple context or transparent mode. PPPoE is only supported in single, routed mode, without failover.

Can not connect to PPPOE DSL

Is there a reason why the Sonicwall needs to do the PPPOE auth? You should be able to let the modem do the PPPOE connection and have the Sonicwall behind it. The Sonic wall will get a private IP address. Andy
