What is "PPPoE Options"

Post by azism » Sat Feb 16, 2013 10:10 am

I see under Ooma Telo Internet Setting is an option for "PPPoE Options". What is PPPoE Options and is it something as a Telo user I should be aware of? :?:

PPPoE is the protocol used with DSL internet.
If you don't have DSL internet is does not apply to you.

Thanks for the information. I have a cable connection. The prospect of going to a cheaper DSL here would reduce my internet speed by about 90%. :!:

I'll stay with what I have, thank you. :)

If you get DSL and use a router the PPPoE connections will be handled in the router. It will contain the username and password to log you into DSL.
The Telo will be set to Dynamic (dhcp) which I think it might be already.
