What is the difference between a PPPoE & PPPoA user or Fixed IP user?

I am setting up a wireless ADSL router and modem and need these details from my ISP but what are they and what is the difference?

Can anyone help, please.

Regards,

Jezzy

Fixed IP - Your ISP will most likely have Dynamic IP addressing as basically this enables them to make the best use of the addresses they have - there are simply not enough IP4 addresses for everyone.

IP6 will however change this in the near future.
