The term PPPoE can be defined as the Point to Point Protocol Over Ethernet. This protocol is used by some Internet Services Providers to manage the internet connections of individual subscribers.
As of now, most routers support the PPPoE internet connection mode. Here we will discuss PPPoE in depth. Thus the users must follow this article to get these details.
How does PPPoE Work?
The internet services providers provide the user with the unique PPPoE Username & Password to set up the PPPoE connection. This type of connection will be used by the services provider to manage the internet connection of the user & allocate them with a fully functional IP Address (say 192.168.1.1). The service provider can also track the data usage of the customer.
The PPPoE network user will initiate a request through the router to the ISP to provide the IP Address. This request will be initiated by providing the PPPoE Username & Password. Now the ISP will provide the user with the IP Address after verification of the username & Password.
