How To Make Windows 10 To Auto Connect To PPPoE On Startup.

First of all I like to say...Hi !

This post is for those...whose has a PPPoE shared connection and every-time needs to connect manually after every boot with Windows 10 and...and wants  to connect to PPPoE connection automatically on startup.

 For this please follow the steps bellow:

  • Setup A New PPpoE Connection (you can skip this step if you already have created a PPPoE connection)
  1. Go to windows SETTINGS.

  2. Than select Network & internet.

  3. Click on Dial-up and select Set up a new connection.
  4. From a new pop-up select Connect to the internet and click on Next buton.

  5. Now click on Broadband (PPPoE)

  6. Now fill-up User name and Password as your ISP gave you. Put a tick mark on Remember password and give a Connection name as like as you want (here I used "PPPoE") than click on Connect button.

    And you are connected to the internet.

  • Create a schedule task to connect automatically to PPPoE connection on every login:
  1. Find Task Scheduler and open it.

  2. From the Action tab select Create Task.

  3. A new pop-up window will be opened. There, on the General tab give a name and description of the task. Click on the Run whether user is logged on or not radio button. From Configure for dropdown list select Windows 10 than click OK button.

  4. Now go to Trigger tab and click on the New button.

  5. And a new pop up window will be opened again. On this window, from the Begin the task drop-down menu select At log on than specify the user and click Ok on button.

  6. Now go to Actions tab and click on the New button.

  7. Again a new popup window will be opened. On Program/script Browse and select the rasdial.exe file from the C:\Windows\System32 folder...And on Add argument text box type: <"connection name"> <User Name> <Password> . (without brackets).
    Here Connection Name is, you have given the connection name on 5th step of "Setup A New PPpoE Connection". Username & Password was given to you by ISP.
    (For me it was: "PPPoE" U.N. Password)
    Now click on OK button.

  8. Than go to Conditions tab and uncheck the tick mark under the Power option.

    and click on OK button.
    Here a Task Scheduler new small window will be opened. on this small window you need to select your Windows User account than enter the password associated with this.

    Now click OK.

         Here's done!
You can check this with restarting your windows 10. Hope it will work on your next boot.
