make another choice in step 6 of http://www.carricksolutions.com/pppoe/windowsvista.php
I have AT&T DSL with a 2Wire 2701 4-port wireless router. I can connect any XP machine either wirelessly or via the cat5 ports on the back of the router no problem. When I bought my new Dell machine with Vista32, I cannot connect to the internet via CAT5 cable, only wirelessly. When I try to connect via CAT5 cable, Windows Vista wants PPPoe info, however the 2wire 2701 is already taking care of the log-in! How can I make Vista understand that I want to connect to a broadband connection that does not require PPPoe, since it's already taken care of in the router? Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated. Granted, I can connect to the internet wirelessly, but I'd rather connect via my CAT5 cable and double my bandwidth.
