Clarification Request
Sounds proper. Why?

Most DSL modems had us install a PPPoE client and those had us login to the DSL system.

Here's more ->

To fix this, I install a router which does this automatically. As I do not have any make, model, OS, and which PPPoE client in use, I can't check if there is another solution.

Without make, model, details I had to GUESS that it was the old PPPoE logon issue. Details are like paddles in the canoe.

Yeah! I should have posted more. I'm 62 going on 92 thanks to this comp. Vista home, IE9, verizon 1.1 to 3 service, westall 6100. will not let me change or use login even after modem recycle/restart. As long as I don't touch the power I have 1.5speeds. After comp restart or sleep I get 'broadband local'. I then have to go to 'network and sharing' and frog around there and enter my normal verizon password, etc. TKS Aarpy

It sounds like someone put the modem into BRIDGE MODE.

In reply to: oops

This would mean you lose the automatic login. shows at about STEP 3 where I enter the login name and password for the first and last time but it appears some EXPERT decided to set this up in bridge mode.

Sorry but I'd get them to put it back to normal so you don't have to use any PPPoE software.
