Confused.
When I was on Home Surf 512 my setup used PPPoA with a internal PCI Modem, I am now on Premium 2m with a Router but the internal setup is telling me I am on PPPoE is this right.
Regards.

Connection Protocol/ type
* PPPoA, also referred to as RFC 2364 (Do not use PPPoE - you will be unable to connect as this protocol is for use in the USA)

I've no idea how true it is .. but my Netgear modem/router said that I'm on PPPoE .. most probably the router side is connecting via PPPoE but the modem side of it is connecting to the BT WAN via PPPoA... but the one showing on my Netgear config is PPPoE.

isnt it that PPPoA is over atm and PPPoE is over ethernet?
there is no reason why PPPoE couldnt be supplied here but from what i see, we havent got those kinda speeds on regular dslams.... Cheesy

maybe some of the LLU providers could do PPPoE.....

PPPoA & PPPoE are encapsulation methods and both are supported in the UK.

PPPoE is actualy more commonly known as PPPoEoA, and add an extra layer of encapsulation on top of normal ATM.

Some ISPs support PPPoE.

It doesn't provide any faster speeds, as the delivery medium is the same.
