Does Cisco 1811 know about PPPoE?

Answered Question
Feb 21st, 2007

Who knows, can I use Cisco 1811 (or 18xx series) to establish PPP connection over Ethernet(PPPoE)?

If not, what model should I use to do it (Cheaper model is prefered).

I have this problem too.

We've got aprove for Cisco 1811(for PPPoE). But after about month post-buy our Cisco integrator told that it's impossible to use such model because it's not able to make PPPoE.

But couple of days ago they told us new IOSs or insertions solved this problem and we can make PPPoE.

But now after your answer I have new question for integrator. Why not 800 series?
