Hi there,
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.

PPPOE is mainly used with lower packages, since they're used to communicate with lower rate of bandwidth throughput..PPPOA meanwhile, is basically an enterprise package, one which requires an Static IP to be configured directly into the modem which is not to be changed at all, since the same config, IP , DNS n router settings are set at the DSlam drivers as well.. So, basically, a PPPOA custs are not advised to reset their modem, since the modem wil the be resetted to default factory settings, 1 which wud be total contrast with the settings in the port. At this moment, if the configs r diff, then the DSL in the modem wud start blinking or totally gone, which means the connection cud not be established..Then u have to call the damn line again n ask to check in the port site..

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 ...

DB102 modem which has been given free during TMnut promotion at the moment can be configured to 3 modes of operation; i.e. Bridge, PPPoE and PPPoA.

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.
" Bridge " mode is usually required when u wan to disable auto connection . wen u setup auto conn, it will be set to Routing mode, then if u wanna disable, change it to Bridge mode.Then it will ask for the connection setup, just put in as LLC mode.

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 tongue.gif

PPPOA no need la, unless u applied for a 2 Mb line, ....wah , got so much money to pay TMNUT meh ? tongue.gif
