You need to make sure you're using the WINXP or later build flavor to have that method available. Broadband entries were not introduced in Windows until XP.

I have the same problem

I tried the following code I found on the site but it complains about the RasDeviceType.PPPoE and RasEntry.CreateBroadbandEntry. I can create any other type of connection.

I am Running Win7 and use Visual C# express 2010 and downloaded the newest dotras from the site.

var device = RasDevice.GetDevices().Where(o => o.DeviceType == RasDeviceType.PPPoE).First();
            RasEntry entry = RasEntry.CreateBroadbandEntry("My PPPoE Entry", device);
            entry.PhoneNumber = "Test Service";

Thanks :-)

As indicated in my previous post, you need to use the WINXP or later build flavor.
