    I am having a cable internet connection at my home and connect to internet using PPPoE.
    when the cable guy came to my home he got me connected to the internet on my PC, and that's working still now.
    but when i connect the same ethernet cable to my laptop it gaves me a error 619, i called them they said that it is working fine.

    is there any way i can connect my laptop to same ethernet cable, and i don't have a wireless router, and don't want to buy one:p. so is there any way i can use same ethernet cable without using different accounts on two PCs.

    one of my friend suggested me to try cloning MAC id, but i am not sure does this work?

    that sounds like a vpn error. If you are connecting straight from your router, you shouldn't need to use vpn, just connect and go.

    Rather unusual to be using PPPoE with cable; usually that's only used with (A)DSL. Anyhow, you probably have to power cycle (unplug for 30 seconds) the modem when switching devices.
