How I can setup some additional parameters of PPPoE dial-up connection?

I’m using PPPoE dial-up connection which is created on Windows 10 Pro version 20H2.
Sometimes I have lot of difficulty to establish the connection to My access router.
I think that the problem is in My access router PPPoE interface settings because I can there to setup many details of PPPoE connection.
I unable (or I don’t know how) to setup those details of PPPoE connection on Windows 10 Pro.
Therefore I kindly ask anybody to provide me which parameters of PPPoE dial-up connection are setup by default when I create one on Windows 10 Pro.
Next parameters I can setup on My access router and those are default parameters when I create one on My access router: Test1c

    @NetworkM Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Q&A!

    According to my research, if you want to configure the PPPoE connection manually on windows 10 computer, you will need the unique ID (username) and password assigned by your Internet Service Provider. The connection setting GUI would be like this:


    For the steps about set up and use PPPoE internet connections in Windows 10, please refer to:

    However, there is a catch: to be able to use it, you have to connect to it each time you need it. If you want it to connect each time you start your computer or device automatically. In that case, you should read:
