Share PPPoE connection?

My ISP disbled my router to only allow 2 devices to connect through router (PC and Laptop). I want to connect Iphone too but since Iphone doesn't support PPPoE I cannot log in to internet. I tried to share pppoe connection in my laptop but it doesn't work....Is there any other way (besides buying other router) to let iphone connect to internet. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

As long as one of your PCs has a WiFi card it can create its own wireless hot spot using Connectify.

I use it to connect my own iPhone to the internet when I'm too far from my router and it works a treat.

It allows you to be both connected to a router wirelessly and to be acting as a WiFi access point at the same time.

It is one of the most versatile networking apps out there.

Well there are a few things to check to be sure Iphone won't work
I dont have one so can't help much there

First off more information is required to assist you such as the name of your ISP
the make and model of your modem and router

secondly why cant you just shut off your laptop or PC and put your iphone in that slot
third it should not matter whether the iphone supports ppoe or not I am sure there are many
people in the world that have there iphone working fine and are barley aware that their router is ppoe
ppoe applies to the log in of the router once the router is logged in it provides service to devices by 'routing'

So you need to log in to your router and go through all the settings and see what you can find
I would suggest making sure the box for dhcp is checked and I would try opening a port for the phone
find your router in the list here and follow the steps >>>>PortForward.com - Port Forwarding Guides Listed by Manufacturer and Model

do you know how to log in into your router ???
I don't think your ISP can limit the number of devices allowed to connect and if they did
I don't know why you can't log in and manually allow all devices
I'm sure you can figure it out with a little persistence

Have you made sure the share internet box is ticked?

If you haven't already go through the Easy Setup Wizard.

As long as the driver is installed it makes no difference, my Connectify is running off of a PPPoE connection and it works fine.

Please make sure your network drivers are up to date.

Could you also fill in your System Specs under User CP and post the make and model of your router.

Have you checked on the back of the router? There might be a reset to factory defaults button.
