PPPoe is required on the modem for DSL service from AT so I don’t think you have to change any settings on the router because the router is connected to the modem and I think that the router assigns the IP address to anything it connects to if you have DHCP on.

What is PPPoE DSL?

PPPoE stands for Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet, a network protocol for encapsulating Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) frames inside Ethernet frames. It is used mainly with DSL services where individual users connect to a DSL modem over Ethernet.

What is PPPoE WAN connection?

As far as PPPoE is concerned, it stands for Point-to-Point-Protocol over Ethernet. PPPoE relies on two widely accepted standards: PPP and Ethernet. It is a specification for connecting the users on an Ethernet to the Internet through a common broadband medium, such as a single DSL line, wireless device or cable modem.

Is AT fiber PPPoE?

Thankfully, AT doesn’t run PPPoE on fiber (but hush before they get any bright ideas), but even if the ‘residential gateway’ is in bridge mode, it’s performimg a useless function for users that don’t need/want it to do NAT or WiFi or whatever it does for TV.

How do I get my AT PPPoE username and password?

Type youe PPP username in the Account Name field (for example: [email protected], etc.) Type your account password in the Password field. Put a check in the box next to Remember this password. Put a check in the box next to Show PPPoE status in menu bar.

What kind of connection is ATT Uverse?

We deliver internet to your location through copper or fiber wiring, depending on the service you ordered. DSL and lower broadband services are usually wired using copper. Most high-speed broadband services (IPBB) deliver internet through a hybrid fiber and copper network.

What is the difference between PPP and PPPoE?

PPP: PPP is a point-to-point protocol that provides a standard method for transmitting multi-protocol packets over point-to-point connections. PPPoE: PPPoE is a point-to-point protocol on the Ethernet. It is a network tunneling protocol that encapsulates the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) into the Ethernet framework.

Which is better DHCP or PPPoE?

PPPoE needs to be configured correctly before a user can actually connect to the Internet, however, DHCP doesn’t need to be configured and is basically plug and play. So using DHCP to connect to an ISP eliminates the problems that are associated with PPPoE.

Can I use Orbi with ATT fiber?

Yes. You can place the gateway in pass through mode and use the Orbi WiFi Mesh System including the satellite as your router. You can still connect devices to the gateway via ethernet as well.

Does AT need WiFi gateway?

AT requires you to use their gateway for their fiber service. You can disable the router portion (pass through mode) and connect a much better router to it. There is also a way to use your own modem but AT will still charge you the monthly fee regardless of what you do once you signup for the service.

Does ATT still use DSL?

AT no longer offers DSL service. Check AT Internet availability to see if AT Internet is available at your location.

How is PPPoE implemented on a DSL modem?

On the customer-premises equipment, PPPoE may be implemented either in a unified residential gateway device that handles both DSL modem and IP routing functions or in the case of a simple DSL modem (without routing support), PPPoE may be handled behind it on a separate Ethernet-only router or even directly on a user’s computer.

What is PPPoE (point to Point Protocol over Ethernet)?

The Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet ( PPPoE) is a network protocol for encapsulating Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) frames inside Ethernet frames. It appeared in 1999, in the context of the boom of DSL as the solution for tunneling packets over the DSL connection to the ISP ‘s IP network, and from there to the rest of the Internet.

What is PPPoE?

Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet. A 2005 networking book noted that “Most DSL providers use PPPoE, which provides authentication, encryption, and compression .”. Typical use of PPPoE involves leveraging the PPP facilities for authenticating the user with a username and password, predominately via the PAP protocol and less often via CHAP.

Is PPPoE used on Wan Lines?

PPPoE is widely used on WAN lines, including FTTx. Many FTTx residential gateway provided by ISP has integrated the routing functions. ^ James Boney (2005). Cisco IOS in a Nutshell.
