Configuring PPPoE on my WiFi router instead o

Specs: Windows 7

I have a Fiber Optic connection at home, where the Fiber Optic modem is
connected to my WiFi router. The problem is that in order to connect to the
Internet, I have to first connect to the WiFi (WPA2) and then dial-in via PPPoE into
the Internet. I provide the ISP username and password in the second step.

I am using Windows 7, and have created a PPPoE connection.

I have to connect to this PPPoE every time I need to connect to the Internet. I
have had to configure this on all my laptops, and have to connect using each
individual machine where I need an Internet connection. This is a big pain, as you
can imagine. Further, I want to connect my Nexus One to the home WiFi Internet
connection, but since it doesn't have PPPoE support, I can't do this.

I went to my router settings (3Com 3CRWDR200A-75), and found something that
seemed promising. In the Internet Settings section, I saw a place to provide the
PPPoE username and password.

However, this hasn't helped. I still have to connect using the PPPoE connection in
Windows :(

Does anybody have any ideas/tips? Any help would be appreciated, as this is
getting frustrating.

I have fiber optic too & I don't need a second router. The supplied router is already wifi enabled.
