Please forgive me if this is the wrong forum but this is my first time on here.
I have had normal connection through a broadband wifi connection that I suddenly lost during a power outage. When I re-connected my wifi connection is fine and shows an excellent connection. However, when I try and connect to the internet through a password protected access, the connection ignores the wifi and goes straight to a "Connecting through Wan miniport (PPPOE)" connection which it cannot locate and "dials" out. Under my device manager I have found 5 WAN miniport network adaptors one of which is "(PPPOE)". Strangely, when I check out the TCP/IP for my wifi connection under Properties I find that whereas it is ticked, the "uninstall" is blanked out implying that it needs to be "installed". A bit baffled - any ideas would be welcome.
