    are you sure you want pptp? That might be your problem right there, but more information would be helpful. Do you have a static or dynamic IP (most likely dynamic, unless you pay the extra $$ for a static one).

    YOu'll need the mac address of your modem and copy that over onto the wireless settings. Also if its cable you should not be using "pppoe", but if its something like SBC Yahoo DSL, using a phone line then "pppoe" is what you'll most likely be using.


    Also If you have a wireless phone, make sure you dont set you wifi to the same channel or you'll get disconnected everytime the phone rings.
