To be able to setup a PPPoE connection in Windows 10, you will first have to launch the “Connect to the Internet” wizard. To begin, launch Settings. If you’re in a hurry, a quick way to open the Settings app in Windows 10 is to click or tap on its shortcut from the Start Menu.
Inside Settings , head to the Network & Internet section.
You’ll also find some additional options that you can change:
Once you’ve made all the settings, click or tap on Connect to initiate the PPPoE connection .
The wizard will go through a few steps, like verifying your username and password and testing your internet connection.
If everything worked well, the wizard will notify you that now “The connection to the Internet is ready to use”.
Now that you’ve set up your PPPoE network connection, you can use it anytime you want to access the internet. But there is a catch: to be able to use it, you will need to connect to it each time you need it. Here’s how to do that:
Click or tap on the Network icon from the notification area on your taskbar, and then click or tap on the PPPoE connection you want to connect to. If you didn’t change its default name, the connection should be called Broadband Connection.
The previous action will trigger the launch of the Settings app and take you to the Dial-up section. In here, click or tap on your PPPoE connection, found on the right side of the window.
To initiate the PPPoE connection, click or tap on Connect.
Either way, once your Windows 10 computer is connected, you’ll be brought back to the Network & Internet section of the Settings app. Here, you can see the Connected message displayed under your PPPoE connection.
