    I have my main computer with the following setup

    Windows Vista connected to the router then to the modem in Bridge Mode (so that I can use NAT1 with my PS3), thus internet works fine for both, my Main Comp (Desktop) using PPPoe and PS3 using a wireless connection between my router but also through PPPoe.

    However, in terms of my secondary computer (Desktop), I have a USB Wireless Adapter, but I do not seem to be able to find the configuration for going on to the internet through the router but to use PPPoe.

    The following are my products

    Router - D-Link DIR-625
    Adapter - D-Link USB Wireless Adapter DWL-G122
    Modem - SpeedStream 5200

    Thanks

    I'm a bit confused. If you're connecting PPPoE with two devices, that indicates you have two modems, which sure doesn't sound right. What are you really doing here?

    let me try again

    So, currently, my Main Desktop is connected to my router, and then from the router to my modem which is in Bridge Mode. Thus I have set up a PPPoe connection for my Main Desktop.

    In terms of wireless connection, I need my PS3 to be connected wirelessly with a NAT Type 1 Connection, hence when I search my router signal, instead of grabbing it, entering the WEP and go, I would also need to enter the username and password info from my ISP as well, which is similar to the setup of a PPPoe connection from my Main Desktop in which I have to enter the same info, but wired (and of course no WEP).

    Now, for my secondary desktop, I used to be able to connect to the Internet without a problem using a USB Wireless Adapeter by grabbing the signal, enter the WEP then go. However, since I need to switch my modem to Bridge Mode in order to use my PS3 online, my USB Wireless Adapter does not seem to work. It "does" say it is connected to the router with good signal but it does not connect to the Internet. As a result, since this is also wireless, how would I establish my Internet Connection back, would I do something similar to what I did for my PS3 (setting up a "PPPoe" connectivity by entering the username/password from my ISP), if so how?

    From my PS3

    Because my modem is in Bridge Mode, I need to connect my PS3 wirelessy using PPPoE settings. [http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/connectadvance.html ]

    However, I couldn't seem to find an option like that from my secondary desktop, and it seems that it is only through PPPoE (entering my ISP ID and Pass) will grant me access the net.
