PPPoE/PPP0A or Bridge Mode??
Recently, I took unlimited connection and had many problems regarding the softwares, which I donwloaded from the net (trial version softwares) even I had an encounter (a real fight and finally defeated by AVG) with Trojan Horse Downloader.Zlob.CP. Now that, I have contacted the Internet Connection Provider regarding this and they came up with configuring my connection from Bridge Mode to PPPoE/PPP0A and also they did said that when I connect to internet using PPPoE/PPP0A, I will be online every time (when I switch on my modem) and also said that there are some firewalls "inside the modem" which will keep your computer safe from all the viruses from the internet.
I am here to know whether, how far these people are correct (Internet Providers) compelling me to go for a PPPoE/PPP0A type configuration. Is there any point in connecting through PPPoE/PPP0A? Or do I have to go for the Bride Mode? (?)
Please help me with this FrIeNdS........ ThAnK yOu in advance.
