I have a username and a password for my broadband connection. Everytime when I installed a new Ubuntu on my old machine, I used command line way configuring pppoe network connection.

  • 1. Open terminal from the dash home or press Ctrl+Alt+T, execute this command:
    sudo pppoeconf
  • 2. It starts looking for pppoe access concentrator on eth0…

  • 3. Say yes on this configure on /etc/ppp/peers/dsl-provider

  • 4. Say yes until you see this prompt, and enter the username.

  • 5. Then enter the password

  • 6. Say yes and OK on following pages and the network connection should be OK

PPPoE will auto connect at startup, you can use following commands to make a manual connection:

  • start with:

    pon dsl-provider
  • stop with:
    poff dsl-provider
