Creating a PPPoE Connection (Windows 10)

  Print



On occasion we might ask you to bypass your router to help isolate an issue (such as no connectivity, slow speeds, etc).
This test helps eliminate variables that might be causing the issue to begin with.

To do a direct PPPoE connection on Windows 10, please do the following:

  • Start by plugging your PC into the LAN ports of the fibre ONT (therefore bypassing the router).
  • Click on The Windows 'Start' button.
  • Click on the settings cog.

  • In the 'Windows Settings' page select 'Network & Internet'.
