  lisalab1 13:48 18 Nov 2007

im trying to set up my new edimax AR-7084gA Wireless ADSL Modem Router on my pc through the ethernet cable.

im stuck at the wizard set-up page as I have to set the ISP manually as my orange home starter provider is not listed.
It say this below which Im confused which option to choose 1,2,3 or 4 to continue for Orange.....

If you cannot find the ISP from the wizard, please follow the procedures below to set the ISP settings manually.

Before configuring the ISP manually, please check with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) what kind of the service is provided such as PPPoE, PPPoA or RFC1483/2684. Gather the information as illustrated in the following table and keep it for reference.
1, PPPoE VPI/VCI, VC-based/LLC-based multiplexing, Username,Password (and Service Name).
2, PPPoA VPI/VCI, VC-based/LLC-based multiplexing, Username,Password.
3,RFC1483 Bridged VPI/VCI, VC-based/LLC-based multiplexing to use Bridged Mode.
4,RFC1483 Routed VPI/VCI, VC-based/LLC-based multiplexing, IP Address,Subnet Mask, Gateway Address, and Domain Name System (DNS) IP Address (It is a fixed IP Address).

1, PPPoE VPI/VCI, VC-based/LLC-based multiplexing, Username,Password (and Service Name).
2, PPPoA VPI/VCI, VC-based/LLC-based multiplexing, Username,Password.

i guess the choice is either PPEoE or PPAoA as orange technical support encaosulation is to choose PPP over ATM right?

I managed to get through the set-up wizard but I still cannot access the internet. It just pops up with the internet connection wizard which is given me 3 options

1 - I want to sign up for a new internet access (my telephone line is connected to my modem) '
2 - I want to transfer my existing internet account to this computer (my telephone line is connected to my modem)
3 - I want to set up my internet connection manually, or I want to connect through a local area network (LAN)

Option 1 and option 2 doesn't work as it states that it cannot detect a modem. Is it because I haven't installed the networking usb adaptor? help
