    PPPOE and Vista

    All i can say is %@$%$

    Why does MS have to limit visit to 1 pppoe connection.

    For XP you can use raspppoe and enable two WAN connections ...

    ./rant over

    Main goal:

    Have two adsl account running simultanousely.

    Why?

    Well ISP prices on accounts.

    1 x Local account for downloading
    1 x Int account for Gaming

    I have gone and set up RASPPPOE and Route sentry (application for spliiting connections, it splits Local traffic VS International traffic) on another PC in my network.

    Running great with LAN connection (router) as Int account and 1 x PPPOE as local account so I can atealst download there, Remote in , manage and copy files over the network.

    Does anyone have a solution for me where I can create 2 x PPPOE connections in Vista?

    I have a telkom 100WR router with latest firmware and I dont even know how to set it to bridge mode help!

    Any yes I have RTFM'd all day.

    Thanks guys

    Get an 'older' computer, stick 2 network cars in there, install linux or bsd on it. Then you can have as many PPPoE connections as you want.
    Added bonus, nice firewall and IDS features and a whole lot more

    Easier said than done SD.

    I will have to somehow aquire a third PC for the network and put a linux on there. Gonna have issues configuring it but I must learn anyway.

    My flat is getting quite small for all these computers ...

    rofl!

    I dont know where I am going to get some old computers from though. My office is only 15 people so computers only go every 6 months or so, suppose I can put some money together and get some pc's, anyway thanks for the advice.

    My temp solution is okay for now, allows downloading. So its cool :P

    It is called "Puppy Dog Eyes".. tell your friends, relations and neighbours how keen you are to learn and the many fantastic things you're experimenting on.. Just learn a bit of SE... it won't be long and you will be paving your driveway with computer cases... (yeh you will probably need to outlay a little cash.. for extra NIC's)

    Also have a look around Ex-rental/lease disposals.. full pc's wit monitor for a third to a quarter of a cheap new pc..

    Also..

    On top of what SD mentioned.. have a look at the Smoothwall and IPCOP distro's.. ****** hint .. a possible profitable solution to the over supply of pc's ..configure a few for friends, neighbours and relations...hint*****
