View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to use pppoeconf to create the connection?

June 25th, 2008, 11:23 AM
Thank you for reading my post.
I have an ethernet modem and I configured it to connect to internet from its control panel (using the browser and connecting to the modem web based administration cosnole). The connection type is PPPoE LLC, now I want to create the connection in my computer and use it to connect to internet instead of letting the modem to connect to internet.

what I can not figure out is the way that pppoeconf works, I tried to use it but it say that it can not find andy adsl provider or pppoe peovider on eth0.

Is there anything else which I should configure before I run pppoeconf?
