This may seem dumb but after you installed the ppoe
software, does your network still work? I have a friend
who installed the winfire software and it completely
crapped out his network connections. So much to the point
that when he unininstalled the software that the only way
to get back his networking was a reformat/reinstall of windows.
As for a better router, try cyote linux on a floppy - which is
what I am running with Mindspring. Or you could spend a few bucks
and get a Linksys or Netgear DSL router.

This is a non linux question, but it relates to that PPPoE...
I was trying to enable an "internet sharing" computer, running
Windows, with a BellSouth connection on one side (Linksys ethernet card
and PPPoE "adapter" showing up under network properties), and
a few PCs within the home connected to the sharing computer
via home network phoneline adapters.
I tried choosing both the "PPPoE" adapter, and, alternately,
the Linksys adapter as the "connection to the internet".
Neither one seemed to allow Internet routing from the home
Anyone had experience with a setup like this and the Bellsouth
Please, no laughing at my choice of Windows as the router. It
is my brother in law's PC, and, if I had had my way, I would have
fdisked it, and created a Linux router!
