Re: I like Covad

Here's how to get rid of PPPoE from your computer:

Buy a router that supports PPPoE directly, even if you don't want to hook up any other computers. The Siemens/Efficient Networks units work really well with the Siemens/Efficient DSL modems that Covad ships.

All you do is plug it in, go to a specific IP address that corresponds to the router's settings page, enter your username and password just once, check the PPPoE box and everything else default, and you don't need any special software or settings on the computer. I've tried Windows NT, ME, and now also XP, works just great. And now the routers are even less, saw the 2 port model for $39.95 at Circuit City. Well worth it IMO.
