•What is RASPPPoE?
RASPPPoE is a freeware PPP over Ethernet protocol driver (created by Robert Schlabbach) that can be used as a replacement for the Enternet software provided by Ameritech for connectivity to your DSL account.
•Who can use RASPPPoE?
Any Ameritech user with an external DSL modem and a Network Interface Card (NIC). Internal DSL and USB modems may work with RASPPPoE under certain conditions, please refer to RASPPPoE FAQ#5 for additional information.
RASPPPoE was written specifically for Windows 2000, then adapted for use with NT4, W95, W98, W98SE and WinME.
•What are the differences between RASPPPoE and Enternet?
•RASPPPoE: written as a Windows protocol, uses no system resources and is 200KB in size.
•Enternet: written as a Windows software application, uses 15-20% of system resources and is ~5 MB in size.
•Ok, I want to try it, where do I start?
The first step is to retrieve, print and read the installation instructions FROM START TO FINISH! If you follow the steps outlined by the author, then you should not have any problems with the change-over.
Download the protocol and begin the installation process. If you do not have Dialup Networking installed, you should have your Windows installation CD available.
