PPPoE (PPP over Ethernet) or PPPoA (PPP over ATM), are quite similar but use different protocols. Both require username and password to sign in.
The main difference is that with PPPoA more work is done at hardware level and thats the very reason we require a modem that supports it.
Whereas PPPoE works via the 1483 Bridged driver and client softwares are used to manage the sessions. ALso for this reason the computer resources are slightly used for a PPPoE connection, u might not notice that.
Basically, regarding the resources that Hari said mite take more than normal, i can say that that is not true..Evry connection requires the same amount of resources, regardless whether they are PPPOE or PPPOA . I dun quite seem to get it where he says that the resources are takin up higher than usual..Enlighten me on this one plz sumbody ...

Which one should i choose? I mean the best configuration.
BTW, if i choose Bridge, still i need to set PPPoE dialer on my computer. So, quite confused here.
IF the default is Bridge, then u have to create a new dialer as usual.No need to go into modem page n then connect. Jus double clikc on the icon on desktop, then voila...Ur connected...Now go see porn
PPPOA no need la, unless u applied for a 2 Mb line, ....wah , got so much money to pay TMNUT meh ?
