    pppoe connection countdown

    i m entirely new to Linux (Hardy heron). I hv a broadband connection which sometimes fail or get disconnected. When it get disconnected in Windows, a countdown starts (I have reduced it to 5 sec) and at the end of it it tries to re-connect again. How many times it wd try to re-connect before it goes disconnected permanently can also be set.

    But what is the method to do these things in ubuntu?
    When it is goin disconnected, is ubuntu starting a countdown and trying to re-connect it after few moments?
    How many times it would try before it goes disconnected permanently?
    Can i set the number of times it would try to re-connect, as i can do it in the Windows?

    Will b grateful if u help.
