i use broadband connection i hav a ustarcom ut300r2u modem.
i typed sudo pppoeconf in the terminal then it said i found 1 device eth0 if all your devices were detected click yes. so i did n then i get this error Sorry, I scanned 2 interfaces, 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.
