Windows 7: PPPoE & DHCP

17 Feb 2012   #1

Windows 7 x64 RC1, Vista Ultimate, XP Pro

I have COX cable so DHCP would be the right way. My wireless router is set for DHCP. I have a choice between PPPoE or DHCP so I pick DHCP. My wireless laptop is trying to connect to the Internet using PPPoE and won't connect. It will connect using Ethernet. How can I get my laptop on the Internet because it shouldn't be using PPPoE for wirerless?

Your laptop should be using DHCP. Delete your wireless profile and right click on your wireless network card, go to Properties then TCP/IP properties. Set everything to Auto, DHCP and connect.

I believe this would be a connection that was added, if you go under internet options>connections tab, there might be connections that were created.. If there are any connections in the box in the center remove them.

You need to first of all make sure that your computer is not set for static IP, it should be automatic as for DHCP. Go to run and type "ncpa.cpl" without quotes. Right click on Wireless Network Connection and then click on properties. Choose the IPv4 and then make sure its set to be automatic. Do the same for Local Area connection as well.

After restarting your PC, login in to your wireless router and then make sure that its set to be as DHCP, instead of for Point to Point over Ethernet (PPPOE).................
