PPP over Ethernet is a truly stupid idea whose purpose is to allow DSLAM
manufacturers to sell equipment to both the telephone companies and ISPs.
(Why would you want to provide access to a packet-switched network over a
circuit-switched network simulated on a packet-switched network? Ick!)
If there are any alternatives, I'd suggest switching. I was unable to
find any information at DejaNews or AltaVista about support it, though.
I think the answer is "no".
