PPPoE client configuration

Hi: I'm choosing the right IOS version for a 1720 router with a WIC-1ENET. The WIC will be connected to and ADSL connection to the internet and it needs to use PPPoE. I've been reading IOS features and configuration examples, but I'm still not sure if PPPoE Client support in IOS will work as I spect. I spect the PPPoE Client feature to replace Win-Poet software, but this software ask for an username and a password, and I haven't found such a configuration example. This link

gives an example named "PPPoE Client on an Ethernet Interface" near the end of the article but it doesn't mention usernames nor password. Can somebody give me a hint about using PPPoE Client feature.

I'll really appreciate any help,

Thanks in advance,

Re: PPPoE client configuration

you just need to add the following commands under the dialer interface.

ppp chap hostname (USERNAME)

ppp chap password (YOUR PASSWORD)

In some cases I have seen where you have to change the hostname of your router to your username.
