In windows I do it in this way-
1.First go to My network places ->View network connection->Local area network->Properties->Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)->Install->protocol->Microsoft TCP/IP version 6(select)->Have disk->(then browse to get “RASPPPOE.inf” file from ‘PPPOE” folder)->click OK->select PPP over Ethernet protocol->Click OK->>continue anyway(two times if asked)-> Apply->OK.

2.Then got to run ->Type raspppoe (Enter)->one window will open->select the LAN card (where internet cable is connected)->Click on Query available services->Select Internet provider’s name and->Click on Create dial up connection.-> Then dial up will be created on Desktop where I enter my username and password to start internet.

Google is your friend.. a simple search on PPPoE or PPPoA will give you a couple of thousand results with guides on howto's..


Here is one for you!

We would also like to know your linux distro, and wether it's PPPoE or PPPoA. There are a few tools for both KDE and GNOME too help you set up a PPP connection, see them in the link I provided for you.

Hello Sushil,

The best way to get the answers you need is to tell what Linux distribution and version you are using. And it can be useful to know which brandname and model number of the modem you are using.

From your MS Windows connection instructions it seems you're using a ADSL modem. Doesn't your modem have connection functions integrated?

"Linux 5"?? Do you mean RedHat ENTERPRISE 5? CentOS 5? Debian 5? What???

And someone asked if you were using an ADSL modem, and whether that had connection functions built in, but you didn't answer. Does it? Where does the CAT5 cable plug in to on the OTHER end? A router? Switch? Directly into the DSL modem?

Did you, again even TRY to look this up? Lots of PPPoE software for Linux, have you tried ANY of it?

PICK ONE

Again, from your other posts, YOU are going to have to research, test, and find things out for yourself. You are asking us to tell you which links to click on, read documentation for you, and tell you what to download, from where. You even want us to tell you what to Google for, even after you've been given the terms.

Is there ANYTHING you are willing to do for yourself?

I don't wanna be rude, we are only here to help you, but you can use the EDIT button, instead of replying over and over again.

Anyway.. Google answers

More info:
GPPPoE-Conf 0.3 : is only for speedtouch modems AFAIK, and should only be used if you have a Alcatel Speedtouch modem.

More:
Which modem do you have? Doesn't your modem already connect to the internet? and give you a dynamic ip to use the internet?

We really do need more info from your side, we won't be able to help you otherwise.


And here's more info for you to read, which might help you substantially:

nr1

nr2<< This one might help you most, it's based on the RP3 tool of Red Hat, and is a GUI to enable PPPoE for you. (though this tool was used as of RH6, i don't know wether it still exists, or wether it's been upgraded during the time, as i don't do much RH.)
