    Network connection with PPPoA - can it be done ?

    Does anyone know how to create a connection from PPPoA under Window 8.

    Setup new connection only offers PPPoE which very few providers use. Fortunately I know I can create one via the router wizard but how to do it from Network and Sharing Center ?


    Edit: Sorry Guys wrong section (and I have my specs on ) could a mod or someone move to network section please
