Internet connection via PPPoE

PPPoE is most commonly used when connecting to the Internet over ADSL / VDSL, but sometimes this connection type is also used by ISPs providing Internet over a dedicated Ethernet line.

TIP: When connecting DSL models to an Ethernet provider, refer to the article 'Connecting Keenetic DSL routers to the Internet via Ethernet'.

On the 'Ethernet' page, under 'ISP authentication (PPPoE / PPTP / L2TP)', enter 'PPPoE' in the 'Type (Protocol)' field.
Then, in the 'Username' and 'Password' fields, enter the login and password for the Internet connection provided by your ISP.


Click on 'Show additional PPPoE settings' to display fields with advanced settings.


The 'Service name' and 'Access concentrator' fields are optional; leave them blank if your provider has not given you additional information.
Leave the 'IP configuration' field set to 'Automatically' if your ISP automatically assigns an IP address for Internet access.
If your ISP has provided you with a fixed (static) IP address, select 'Manual' in the 'IP configuration' field and specify the IP address and gateway address in the fields 'IP Address' and 'Remote IP' that appear. For example:


If your ISP neither issues nor requires an IP address to be assigned to your router's WAN interface, i.e. if its network does not have automatic IP address assignment, disable automatic IP address acquisition via DHCP on the WAN port. To do this, in the 'IP and DNS settings' section of the 'IP configuration' field, specify 'No IP address'.
