The iPad doesn't control the PPPoE login.  The router that provides the WiFi signal is what should be configured to send the PPPoE login, not the iPad.

It's unusual to have PPPoE over WiFi, and unfortunately AFAIK, iOS doesn't support PPPoE stack. First make sure you truly are dealing with such a rare bird. More likely than not, you're not and another solution may be available. Describe the network/hardware in more detail to see if that's the case. If you have another system (i.e. laptop) connected, let us know the configuration. Additionally, router brand/model/settings is helpful to determine your situation.

If it turns out you're really dealing with PPPoE over Wifi, then the simplest solution is additional hardware, like an airport or other extra router to bridge the connection for you.
