Here we take Windows XP as an example, and please make certain that your Ethernet Adapter is working well.

For Windows Vista, the procedure is very similar:
Start Menu—Control Panel—Network and Sharing Center—Setup a Connection—Connect to the Internet—Broadband (PPPoE)—Username and Password—Finish.

Note: The ADSL modem/router should be configured to work on Bridge mode in order to use the New Connection Wizard to set up the Internet connection.

Step 1 On the Windows taskbar, click the Start->Control Panel, then select and double-click Networking Connections.

Step 2 Select Creat a new connection. The New Connection Wizard will appear then Next.

Step 3 On the Network Connection Type page, choose Connect to the Internet then Next.

Step 4 On the Getting Ready page, choose Set up my connection manually then Next.

Step 5 On the Internet Connection page, choose Connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password then Next.

Step 6 On the Connection Name page, ISP Name is whatever if you like, then Next.

 

Step 7 On the Internet Account Information page, input the User name and Password by provided from your ISP if you have applied a broadband service, then Next.

 

Step 8 Ok, what is needed to access the Internet has configured. If you would like to connect the Internet quickly each time, select Add a shortcut to this connection to my desktop. Then click Finish, it will save the configuration automatically.

 

Step 9 After saving the configuration, the connection to the Internet will appear. Check the User name and Password, if they are right, click Connect then you will access the Internet.
