With, for example FTTC, where a modem is provided for you, you would usually plug in a router and configure the router with your username and password. However, you can use a computer instead of a router, and get online by just plugging the network port of your computer in to the modem and set up a 'PPPoE' connection...

  • PPPoE username = as supplied, e.g. x@a.1
  • PPPoE password = as supplied
