Windows 8 PPPoE procedure:

Before you begin, ensure that an Ethernet cable is connected from the appropriately provisioned port on your UTOPIA equipment to your computer.

Move the cursor to the far upper-right or lower-right side of the screen to open the menu pictured below. Click on "Settings."


Click on "Control Panel."

Select the "Network and Sharing Center" from the list.


Click on "Set up a new connection or network."

Select "Connect to the Internet."


When asked how you would like to connect, select the "Broadband (PPPoE)" option.

Enter your XMission username and corresponding password. In the example below, we have used "bobdobbs" as a username. You would replace this with your own, unique XMission username. Remember that passwords are case-sensitive! You may name the connection whatever you like, but we recommend you simply use "XMission." You will also likely want to check the two boxes indicated below -- "Remember this password" and "Allow other people to use this connection." Once finished, click "Connect."


Your Internet connection is now ready to use!
