Windows Store apps can't connect to the Internet over PPPoE in Windows 8

Symptoms

When you are connected to the Internet over a Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) connection on a Windows 8 system, certain Windows Store apps can't connect to the Internet. However, all desktop applications can connect successfully to the Internet.

Cause

Previously, Windows Store apps could not correctly recognize the PPPoE connection. This issue was resolved by an update that enables Windows Store apps to work over PPPoE.
