    Unable to install PPPOE connection with external NIC card

    Hello everyone,

    I am facing a problem recently. I hope anyone of you can help me to solve it. Recently I have been installed Windows Eight Pro 64-bit in two of my desktop computers. One pc having motherboard Intel DG41 and the other one is Asus Sabertooth P55i. I have two external Realtek NIC card installed in both of the pcs. When I was using Windows Seven 64-bit, I installed PPPOE as follows:

    => Conrtol Pannel
    => Network and Sharing Center
    => Setup a new connection or network
    => Connect to BROADBAND (PPPOE) [something like that]

    But when I am trying to install pppoe on windows eight like the same process, it shows "Unable to install PPPOE" kinds of message and reboot. I thought the NIC card driver was not installed properly so I re-install the NIC card driver and again tried but it crashes and then reboot.

    The funny part is, when I plugged the Ethernet cable into my built-in NIC card (the one that is embeded on Motherboard), it doesnt reboot and installed successfully. But I need to use the external NIC card and with that I am unable to connect to PPPOE.

    Can anybody help me please solving this issue? I face the same problem in both of my pc and now I have to use the built-in NIC card. Is there any solution to use the external NIC??

    I assume your external cards are WiFi is that correct ?

    On my system I setup router with PPPOe and then using a usb WiFi simply used new connection.

    May or may not work for you but bon chance as they say

    The answers are:
    ques-1: None of the pcs are routers that I tried to connect to internet. I use simply a broadband connection with a provided Username and Password (with a fixed primary dns address), you can consider them as clients if you want.

    ques-2: As I said earlier, I did not tried to connect pc2 to pc1, I just simply tried to connect both the pcs to the router (via some switches)

    ques-4: I am afraid that my motherboard would be damaged or burned due to Thunderstorm Lightening because a lot days ago, my one old pc was damaged due to Lightening, it crashed my motherboard and my motherboard became dysfunctional. I used internal lan card which was built in the motherboard.

    Thank you, I hope now you understand the problems.
