A Belkin router can be configured to use the PPPoE connection with the DSL modem. Not all but some ISPs (internet service providers) require their DSL customers to go online using PPPoE. The below mentioned guide will help you configure the PPPoE connection on your Belkin router. It is however recommended that users follow the instructions carefully to avoid facing problems and eventually contacting Belkin technical support to fix them.
Make your computer a wired connection if it is a wireless one. Connect an Ethernet cable to the computer and run its other end into the one of the 4 LAN ports of the router.
Step1:When done, go online (connect to the internet).
Open Internet explorer or Firefox etc., Type ‘’ and
then press Enter key.When prompted for a username and password,
enter it in the box and click on the Submit button and then on the Login button. It will also be indicated on the screen
