Most ISPs don't use PPPoe, although there are local variations. Did you get any documentation that suggested this was the right thing to do?

The modem/router usually manages the login process with the ISP. It would normally have an embedded website that allows you to configure the passwords and other parameters. Have you set this up and did you get it right?

In reverse order, No. You might however want one if you have something like an Nvidia or ATI 'video card'. If you don't know whether you need one or not, why not stick with what you've got?

What's a quantian? I really have no idea.
