This is something new for me. I have just returned from a client's place 
where he was having problems with his ethernet internet service. His system 
( Win98) needed to be reloaded again as it was contaminated with unwanted 
files installed in his system and the explorer would crash. The Cable guy 
has switched over to Linux and a firewall for security at his end. He told 
me that the new system only needed automatic ip setting to be enabled at the 
client end and the system was already internet ready. I asked for the 
gateway ip but he said it was not needed. How is that possible? He will be 
visiting the client and setup the ethernet net part tomorrow. Can you throw 
some light on this?

I also found this usefull link for PPPOE
