    PPP and PPP over Ethernet (maybe "on" instead of "over")
    Just Google It. √

    I don't think there's much of a difference besides what Hunter said. PPP is a protocol, Ethernet is a medium. PPPoe describes both, while PPP describes only the protocol.

    PPP - Point to Point Protocol
    PPPoE - Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet

    PPP is generally used for dial-up connections (telephone modems).
    PPPoE is generally used for cable/dsl modems.

    And for future reference, www.whatis.com is good for finding out these kind of things.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
