Ok, I must ask this, as I also have ADSL: Why do you have to use PPPoE? I use straight ethernet connection and it works wonderfully for three comptuers. Now unless the ISP has the DSL routers set to PPP bridging mode (don't know why they would do that, tho) there shouldn't be a need for this.

Do you do Linux? :)
