@Tetsujin that rather insecure looking w character password is widely available on the internet, and is needed to get the AirPort to connect to the ADSL Modem. Usually you would use the BT infinity WifiHub, but that is shockingly insecure, and I prefer my Time Capsule AirPort.

@j-beda I'm worried I've been hacked and PPPoE is being used to bypass my Airport Routers protections. I've added a screenshot to the q.

"Usually when your Internet service provider requires it it will be used." really? this is the connection from my laptop to the Airport (time capsule).

@Buscar BT (UK) - it is fibre to the end of the street, looks like ADSL to the house.
