What is a PPPoE connection?

Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) combines PPP, which typically runs over broadband connections, with the Ethernet link-layer protocol that allows users to connect to a network of hosts over a bridge or access concentrator.

What is the difference between PPPoA and PPPoE?

1. PPPoE means Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet while PPPoA means Point-to-Point Protocol over ATM. 2. PPPoE encapsulates PPP frames inside the Ethernet frames while PPPoA encapsulates frames inside AAAL5.

Should I use PPPoE or IPoE?

Unlike the PPPoe, IPoE is easy to use and does not need any client dial-in software. IPoE authenticates and charges users based on their physical location (identified by a unique VLAN ID / PVC ID). Users do not need to enter a user name and password when they access the Internet.
