Does Windows 98 has embedded a native PPPoE client? I read it does, but I can't configure it...

PPPoE (PPP over Ethernet):
Another dial-up type connection method. PPPoE client software is from NTS (or various unsupported alternatives). The icon is typically located in a NTS EnterNet 300 folder. (As of EnterNet 1.34, integration with DUN is also possible.) Username, password and then connect as with PPPoA. Note that an additional layer of software is involved here.

MMMM, that's not what I was asking... I know what PPPoE is and means, and i know that I can install an additional  software (Enternet 300) to dial and connect to a DSL access.
What I need to know is if there is any native client in windows 98, as it is in XP. I don't want to install any other software.

Thanks anyway

I don't believe there is.

That's correct, there isn't.  My ISP is earthlink, and my DSL connection in Win98 and WinME must use their "dialer" software to make the PPPoE connection to the internet.  My WinXP system doesn't need this software, as PPPoE is built in.

If you don't want to install additional (non-windoze) software, how about using a router (eg D-link) for the DSL connection?  Your W98 system will need a NIC and standard windoze networking software to connect to the router, but the DSL setup / connection will all be handled by the router, which uses Internet Explorer to enable you to configure it ,

i know you don't want external software, but rasppoe is good and small - but read the instruction HTML page carefully...

(it is a lot free-er than winpoet, and works with AOhelL, for those unfortunates)
