Windows 7: PPPoE Prior to Login

12 Jul 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
PPPoE Prior to Login

Hey all,

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate and I connect directly to the internet via my providers modem. I am not using a router and would rather not. It's just a straight through connection. In order to connect to the internet the PPPoE connection has to be dialed but this doesn't work well with Remote Desktop. If I need to reboot my machine from the office then I'm pretty much hooped on reconnecting to it until I'm back at my apartment.

Is there a way to establish this connection to the Internet prior to logging in so that I can use remote desktop and reboot my system? Thanks in advance.

I would think that you could create a script which dials/runs the program that dials your connection for you.

I can write the script if you provide all the commands.
