    PPPoe connection configuration problems

    Hi!
    I am having trouble with a newly installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick. And I am new to Linux.

    The story:
    I installed Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit on a 80 GB HDD partitioned as follows: 16GB swap, 16MB boot, 35GB System(ext4) 30GB (ntfs) - for future windows installation. Typing sudo pppoeconf I managed to connect ot the interent. The connection failed several days later, with the Network connections icon disappearing from the taskbar(upper right corner of the screan). I booted from the USB stick - the network connections manager reported "Wired conenction disconencted". I could not connect to the internet thereafter.

    Here are some of the things I have tried:

    Code:
    vorac@Strahil:~$ sudo pppoe -I eth0
    [sudo] password for vorac: 
    pppoe: Timeout waiting for PADO packets
    
    		  │ I found 1 ethernet device:							   
    		  │ eth0													  
    		  │														   
    		  │ Are all your ethernet interfaces listed above?			
    		  │ (If No, modconf will be started so you can load the card  
    		  │ drivers manually).									   
    		  │														
    		  │ Or press ESC to abort here.							  
    		  │														 
    		  │														  
    		  │			   <Yes>				  
    
     Sorry, I scanned 1 interface, but the Access			 
    		  │ Concentrator of your provider did not respond. Please	 
    		  │ check your network and modem cables. Another reason for   
    		  │ the scan failure may also be another running pppoe	   
    		  │ process which controls the modem.
    
    vorac@Strahil:~$ sudo ifup -a -v
    Configuring interface eth0=eth0 (inet)
    run-parts --verbose /etc/network/if-pre-up.d
    run-parts: executing /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wireless-tools

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ ping -c 5 209.85.227.103 
    connect: Network is unreachable 
    
    When running from the USB-stick Ubunto shows an icon Wired Connection: Disconnected – you are now offline.
    The internet fee is payed, so I assume the problem is not by the ISP. Please give me some advice.

    PS: The system behaves in the same way even with the HDD disconnected.

    Re: PPPoe connection configuration problems

    Thank you for your answer, dineshs. After trying to fix the problem for a week, today I come home, power the computer on, and google opens up (I am writing from the machine now). I guess the problem was not at my home - should the problem return, however, I will try your advice.

    Wellcome to me on Ubuntu
