Wireless router settings for onetel bb account

Does anyone know what the settings are for a onetel bb connection for a wireless router? ie is it PPPoE or PPPoA - I've searched everywhere on their website which is where I expected to find it but to no avail. I have sent them an email but I want to set the router up today rather than when they get back to me.
Thanks

Try PPPoA, which is the usual way over a BT line.

Thanks FelixTCat - I've now got a wireless network that works between the 2 XP pcs - the challenge now is to get a print server & win98 pc to work on the network (both of those wired) as well - so you may hear some more from me!

No trouble. That's easy, especially if they're wired. Let us know how you get on, even if it works. Speak to you again soon.

Felix - I havn't connected up the print server because reading its instructions it says I have to specify the IP & gateway address. I thought that the router would automatically give an IP address to the print server so I'm a bit confused. The print server is a Linksys EFSP42 (2 port switched) & the router/ADSL modem is a Belkin. Am I right in thinking that the print server software needs to be installed on every pc on the network and also the printer drivers for both printers onto all the pcs?
On teh win 98pc I have an entirely different problem that I'll start a thread in helproom for.

Connect the printer server to your router and check in the router's DHCP assigned addresses to see if it has automatically issued an address. However, it would probably be better to give it a fixed address. Tell DHCP to issue addresses in the range 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.8 and give the server a fixed address of 192.168.0.9.

I think that with XP you don't have to install the server software on every PC - you set up an TCP/IP printer.

Yes, you do need the printer drivers on each PC because they have to send the data to the printer in the correct format.
