Thanks for the doc. I noticed at the bottom that being in Atlanta explains
why only PPPoE is the only option for new installs. The biggest hurdle I
faced was the BS salespeople who would promise me PPPoA and then installers
that insisted PPPoE was the only option when other sites(users) already had
the PPPoA. It literally took 5 trips and 3 different installers to get what
I wanted at one site which just so happened to be the CEO's house and his
*extensive* home network.
The internal PCI card I referenced earlier that will support PPPoA in NT4
but not 2K was the Efficient 3060 from Efficient networks. The USB I used
was from the same, model 4060.
One additional note is that I did an IFITL install (I-fiddle), that did not
use the Enternet software as mentioned in the doc. Unless of course I
misread it. If you have fiber in your 'hood, then just plug the modem into
the wall with a Cat 5 cable and its "hot"....
Thanks again for the info...
