Hi,
     I curently get DSL access through Bell Sympatico in Southwestern Ontario.  I have the software now installed for win 98 but I was wondering how I can get it working under win 2000, I went to the support page and they said it was unsupported by them, but certain third party applications may work.
Here's the page FYI:  http://hse.sympatico.ca/en/questions/faqTech.htm#19

So does anyone know where I could get these apps and how I can set them up properly?

I hope this helps.
-------------------------------

  win 2000 and pppoe protocol
             I had the same prob. Bell Atlantic refuses to support Win 2k. I found this    pppoe application and installed it. So far everything is great. I get   consistent ~60kb/s downloads with a few tweaks to rcv window and   maxMTU. Here is the link.

Others have said that installing on W98 and then copying the cofiguration to win2k also works.
