hmm you wern't to clear when you posted. are you using dial up or a cable modem? if you are using a cable modem you shouldn't have to connect, as it is a permanent connection.

for my broadband connection I was using RASPPPoE which made PPPoE work as if it was a dialup connection. Then It was compatible with all my old auto-dialing tools etc.

Ok, I've got a Cableconnection but I can use it as a dailup....in windows 98 I had no "tools", there wass just an option "automatic connect" or something ....when I set that on & playsed a shortcut og the connection under start -> startup then he automatic connected when I started :) but now I can't find that option anymore :(

Cable Modems do not use PPPoE, they are static/DHCP always-on connections. Are you sure you don't have DSL, and not Cable? There is a difference.

ACTUALLY, both cable & DSL can use PPPoE, PPTP or plain ethernet routing as you describe.
Anyway it was just an example.
