That's precisely the point about Metro Ethernet. There is no ISP supplied 
equipment whatsoever. A LAN cable comes in from the window in your house 
which you simply connect to the LAN port - just like a telephone landline. 
(They must be having some common switch etc for a no of users in a given area 
and keeping it somewhere. User doesn't even has to know that.)

I don't know what you mean by that. There is ACNAME field in network 
configuration tool (system-config-network in my case) or in the network 
configuration scripts under /etc. I have to put the ACNAME found using 
pppoe-discovery there for connection to work.
