Just wanted to know before venturing on home networking. Intent networking two pc's with winXPpro using router with DSL
PPOA. Any issues with this protocol. Most if not all forums only mentioned PPOE. What should i need to know first ?
First you should know that PPoA is for use with ATM. So if you aren't using ATM, you probably won't be using PPoA. If you are, the ISP has an interesting operating structure. BT did at one time and may still. No idea about the ISPs in your part of the world.
For the most part, if the router is PPoA/PPoE ready and your ISP uses either, the connection should be automatic using their setup instructions.
If you need help at any point, post back and include specifics (which ISP, Modem, Router/Switch/PC Operating Systems).
Newt, this is where the problem lies. I am having a hard time
finding router that supports PPOA. Most if not all supports PPOE.
Any recommendaitons on PPOA supported router. My ISP do not
support router. Meaning they don't provide router configurations
walkthru. I have to go thru' vendor.
