Windows 95, 98, ME PPPoE setup
Windows 98 does not have the PPPoE client built in like Windows XP.
You'll need to use a 3rd party software. One such software is WinPoET and it's documented below.
Another alternative is a free software called raspppoe.
That program, and more information is available at: http://www.raspppoe.com/.
What do I need installed on my system to install WinPoET?
- You need a working dialup adapter with a TCP/IP stack bound to it, and Microsoft Virtual Private Networking.
- Right click your network neighborhood.
- Choose "Properties"
- Look for "Dial-Up Adapter" and "Dial-Up Adapter #2 (VPN Support)
- If you do not have either of these, go to Question 4.
