Okay so everything I have read with problems about PPPoE has described some of the symptoms of my problems so I promise this is different and I'd like wireless soon so if you guys could please help i'd be very grateful! This is the deal; I am at college (IUP) to be exact, and if that helps. And since I am here, they use PPPoE (We have a user name and password) and I have been having a ton of problems with the internet here.. First off the wireless.. When trying to connect to their (so-called) wireless I get really shallow connetion. In other words I get like one bar and i drop it constantly..Which is making me mad, because i can't even be in my bed and browse the internet..So I have been tyring to make my own wireless. This however has not been working. So basic knowledge tells me plug in an ethernet to the wall connection and then to my Airport express.. No good. It says I have a connection, but always fails to look up the PPPoE server. I know I have my log in an password correct, and I did enable PPPoE in the network section of System Preferences. So I dont know what is up. Maybe I need to use a Cat6 cable? b/c right now I am using a 5. Wired connection can be just as weird. Though more stable, as soon as I plug in my ethernet I get the responce to saying that I am connected, but I cannot actually connect to say AIM or even load a page until about 2 mintues after i plug in.. However the iMac is constantly pluged in so I am pretty good on the wired connection and that is fine, even in bootcamp the connection is good. I would just like some help on the wireless and if you guys know anything I would greatly appreciate it.. If you have any questions I will gladly answer, any btw I am pretty sure IT doesn't understand Macs so that is why I haven't been there yet.
