    telnet to your router

    nvram show | grep pppoe_passwd

    its unencrypted.

    If you can login to the router, pull down the config.bin file by clicking administration -> config management -> Backup.

    open it up in notepad and you should see your pppoe username and password in cleartext.

    tip: to easily open files in notepad, right click your desktop and click NEW-> Shortcut type in notepad and next next ok.
    Then simply drag your config.bin (or whatever) over the shortcut and it will open in notepad.

    Some tags for google:
    decode wrt54g ppoe password
    extract ppoe password from config.bin
    recover ppoe password from linksys router
