I can't seem to get this working. I'd like to have folders shared on the LAN while I have one or more PPPoE connections dialed through the DSL router. The shares are visible if I have no pppoe connections dialed and rely on the main connection dialed by the router. If I dial a pppoe connection my PC becomes hidden to the LAN.

The operating system is Windows 7.

It helps if you draw us a picture of your LAN. How are all your computers connected? Are they all connected through your router? A separate switch? – surfasb Feb 21 '11 at 16:29

What is the type of your base network with and without pppoe? Home or Public? OS will sometimes change your network type when you use pppoe.
