The multi product is just multiple individual PPPoE accounts.
The enhanced product is a single PPPoE account with one or more
IP addresses routed to you. How (or if) you use NAT will depend
on how many public IP addresses you get. But typically, you will
get just one, so will use NAT to hide LAN behind that address.

And you're not the only one! Most ADSL/PPPoE routers do this by default
now, so the average DSL user does not have to worry about MTU sizes.
