1. How do I install RASPPPoE on Windows '98, 98SE, and ME?

1) Uninstall any flavors of PPPoE (any other PPPoE software programs) installed on your system. Only after downloading the RASPPPoE program.

Note: You must also uninstall RASPPPoE if you have a previous version installed.

Get it here: RASPPPoE program.

2) Unzip the zipped RASPPPoE folder to a temp directory of your choice.
3) Right click on "Network Neighborhood" (in ME "My Network Places"). Choose "Properties".
4) Click "Add..."
5) Select "Protocol". Click "Add..."
6) Select "Have Disk". Select "Browse" Then choose the folder you unpacked the RASPPPoE programs to. Then select any one of the INF files, it does not matter which one.
7) Click "OK".
8) Then "OK" again.
9) In the "Select Network Protocol" window make sure "PPP over Ethernet Protocol" is highlighted and click "OK".
10) Click "OK" on "Network" window.
11) Click "Yes" to Reboot.
12) Delete the temp folder you unpacked RASPPPoE in to at the start.
13) Go to your "Start" menu, and then choose "Run". Type in RASPPPoE and click "OK"

Note: If you get an error message then follow the Windows prompts.

14) "RASPPPoE" window opens, if you have more then one Ethernet card make sure the card connected to your modem is selected. Screen shot
15) Choose "Create a Dial-Up Connection for the selected Adapter". Screen shot
16) Click Exit.

Note: If you do not see a Dial-Up short cut on your desk top then open "My Computer", then "Dial-Up Network", then delete the new Dial-Up Adapter (should be named "Connection through..."). Then start back at step 14.

17) Double click the Dial-Up short cut on your desk top.
18) Enter your userid as provided by your ISP.

Note: you may need to include your ISP's domain as part of your userid. Ex. For Verizon customers it would be userid@verizon.net.

19) Enter your password as provided by your ISP.
20) Click "Save Password"
21) Click "Connect".
22) Surf away!

2. How do I get RASPPPoE to connect on boot in Windows 2000?

1. Create a "dialing" entry for "RASPPPoE" (example name). Make sure it connects.
2. Go into the task scheduler and schedule a task to RASDIAL the connection and have it "Run at Startup". RASDIAL will tell you its syntax if you ask it to.
3. Go into the registry and turn off the "RAS Connection" logoff notification.

Microsoft
KeepRasConnections REG_SZ
Range: 0 or 1
Default: 0 (disabled)

4. Change (or create) the key and set the value to 1.

OR:

1. Place a short cut to RASPPPoE in your startup folder.
2. In your Dial-Up networking properties, uncheck "prompt for username/password".

3. I'm having trouble with RASPPPoE on Windows '98 SE and my computer locking up on boot, and shut down.

4. I've installed RASPPPoE, but didn't get the choice to enter my user id and password.

If you can't enter it in the Dial-Up icon for your RASPPPoE connection, try this:
Right click on IE > click on properties > click on connections.
Click on the Ethernet connection > click settings.
Enter your userid and password there.

5. How can I get RASPPPoE to stay connected even when a user logs off?

From Microsoft:

WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to reinstall the operating system to correct them. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use this tool at your own risk.

To modify the behavior of RAS when logging off, change the value of the following registry key:

HKLM\ Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\Winlogon

KeepRasConnections REG_SZ
Range: 0 or 1
Default: 0 (disabled)

You should restart the computer after making this change.

By default, when logging off, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 closes all RAS connections opened during the session. If this registry key value is added and set to 1, the system will not close RAS connections when logging off. This registry key value does not appear in the registry unless you add it.

6. I can't keep my RASPPPoE connection alive without a Ping Utility or constantly checking my e-mail. Why?

RASPPPoE currently has no means to detect when a connection is improperly terminated (i.e. the server just stops sending data). Some PPPoE clients periodically send LCP Echo-Requests to check whether the connection is still alive. However, that goes beyond RFC 2516, which only recommends that the server periodically sends Echo-Requests.

7. How do I get RASPPPoE to auto-connect on Windows '98 log in?

Under Dial-Up Networking > Connections > Settings.

Make sure "Prompt for information before dialing" is not checked off. (Dial-Up Networking > Connections > Settings).

Then place a shortcut to the RASPPPoE connection that made into C:\WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.

In Windows ME:
1) Go to your Dial-Up Networking Properties -> On the "Security" tab, check "connect automatically" and enter your password.
2) On the "Dialing" tab, check "This is the default Internet connection" and select "Always dial my default connection".
Make sure "Enable idle disconnect" and "Disconnect when connection may not be needed" are not checked. Add a shortcut to the DUN connection to the Startup folder and you should be set.

8. RASPPPoE will not detect my USB modem.

RASPPPoE will work with some USB connections. I would recommend updating your USB drivers for the product you are using, then running through the install.

9. How do I use RASPPPoE with ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) in Windows '98?

After installing RASPPPoE and verifying it works:
1) Using "Internet Options" in your "Control Panel", choose "Set Default" under the "Connections" tab. Choose your RASPPPoE connection. Then check the little circle that says "Always dial my default".
2) Install ICS.
3) Tell ICS that the "LAN-side" Ethernet card is your "LAN", and that Dial-Up networking is the "WAN-side". The changes you made using the Internet Options control panel will allow everything to work.

10. I am having trouble using RASPPPoE with a 3Com DSL modem.

From the RASPPPoE website:
"Patch for 3Com modem users (only for the 32-bit release) The modem manufacturer 3Com has "invented" their own flavor of PPP over Ethernet, simply by replacing the ETHER_TYPE values described in RFC 2516 (0x8863/0x8864) with their own ones (0x3C12/0x3C13). While I do not endorse such "innovation" and call upon 3Com to offer an RFC 2516 compliant firmware upgrade for their products to their customers, I still want to help customers suffering from this. After downloading above file, download the 3Com Patch: RASPPPOE_096_3COM.ZIP (17,452 bytes) and replace the file RMSPPPOE.SYS from the original download with the one in this archive prior to installing. Note that with this version you will only be able to connect to 3Com modems, not to any RFC 2516 compliant servers anymore. Revert to the original RMSPPPOE.SYS to be able to connect to RFC 2516 compliant servers again."

11. I can not enter my Username or Password in RASPPPoE, it just auto-connects.

You need to adjust your Dial-Up networking properties to prompt to connect.
1) Go to your Dial-up Networking folder.
2) Choose "Connections"
3) Then "Settings".
4) Make sure "Prompt for information" is checked off.

23. I'm having trouble with RASPPPoE and my VPN.

You need to lower your MTU in RASPPPoE to nothing less then 1324. You could lower it on your Ethernet card, but easiest to do it in RASPPPoE.

It depends what OS but you may have this option:

1) Right click "My Network Places" -> Select "Properties"
2)Click on "PPP over Ethernet Protocol" -> "Properties"
3) Check off "Override Maximum Transfer Unit" and set the value as you need.

24. I am running Windows 2000 Advanced Server and can't install RASPPPoE.

Generally this is caused by having two Ethernet cards installed and running in your system. You need to disable the second one before the install. Once installed and working you can then reinstall the second Ethernet card.
