Are you using Network manager DSL tab (GUI) or command pon dsl-provider?

Network manager DSL tab (GUI)

and had edited my /etc/rc.local

adding to it these lines to make it run automatic at startup

#----------------for auto connect adsl

killall pppd

ifconfig eth0 up

pon dsl-provider


it make it auto connect on startup ok >>> but i think i'm missing something ???
