Windows XP PPPOE Configuration

Since Windows XP has its own PPPOE implementation, it is not necessary to install a 3rd party driver to get the connection for DSL working. Instead we can use the built-in software to create a stable and compatible connection in short order. The first thing that we’ll need to do is click on the Start button, typically in the lower left-hand corner of the screen in XP. Once the Start menu is opened, click on Control Panels, then Network and Internet Connections.
