How to Set Up PPPoE to Work With Windstream DSL

PPPoE, or Point to Point over Ethernet, is a type of networking protocol used by your computer to transfer data. Enabling this setting on your Windstream DSL connection means that you must enable it through the network router in your home. Accomplish this by accessing your router's settings through any network computer, a process that takes just minutes to complete.

Step

Start your computer and ensure that you are connected to your Windstream DSL connection.

Step

Click "Start," "Programs" and open your Internet browser.

Step

Enter the address of your router and press "Enter." This is typically something like 192.168.0.1 and can be found in your router instruction manual.

Step

Select the "Setup" menu of your router and check the box by "PPPoE." Enter the username and password for your Windstream account to complete the PPPoE configuration.
