What is PPPoE?

Point-to-point protocol over Ethernet is a network protocol for encapsulating PPP frames in Ethernet frames. It is used mainly with ADSL services for connecting multiple computer users on an Ethernet local area to a remote area network. It offers standard PPP features such as authentication, encryption, and compression. At Aircomplus, PPPoE is the practice utilized for connecting hi-speed modems to the service provider. Unlike dialup connections, ADSL is “always on”.
