    Is it normal? I'm running Win XP SP3 as OS, limited user account (pppoe starts slowly as well from the administrator account), the only program in the startup is the antivirus--avast.
    What happens typically just after logging is that I open the browser and stare at it waiting for connection and if I open the task manager i see svchost.exe NETWORK SERVICE at 99% CPU all this time it dials its connection. It's something like 2-3 minutes more after logging till i can surf the web.
    I had previously a linux install on this computer in which the same pppoe worked very fast compared with what i get on Xp, i used to log in and the daemon was taking 2 seconds to start . Compared to that experience i don't get at all the way pppoe works in windows so I come here asking if anyone could help me find what can I improve in my install. I've searched the "whole" web for an alternative to the built-in pppoe dialer in Windows and found ONLY two Cidial and Raspppoe which I 'm currently running but no sign of improvement.
    I appreciate any little help.
