You only need PPTP if you want to set up VPNs to (usually) Microsoft VPN
Also which is better to use, Ethernet or ATMF 25 ?
Do you have an ATM card in your PC or ethernet? Probably not. At the end
of the day it doesn't matter as your DSL bandwidth will be a lot lower
than even 10Mbps ethernet. So long as the router supports G.DMT
signalling and PPPoA with a VPI of 0 and VCI of 38 then you should be in
business :) If you've got a routed block (e.g. a /29) then your ISP's RADIUS
server should download routes to your router at logon. Most routers can be
configured to route this block through to the local network, and virtually all
of them can do NAT (optionally with port forwarding).
Hope this helps.
