I have a new broadband connection and i want to connect it using ubuntu. I have a user name and a password, nothing more.

I want to know how to connect to such network, how to create the connection?

Best Answer

You have two options for PPPoE as I understand from your question.

Option 1

DSL provided by Network Manager. Just go to Edit Connections… in the Network Settings and you will see DSL on the last tab and Add the connection.

Option 2

In your terminal type sudo pppoeconf and follow the instruction and setup the connection. You can control the connection with sudo pon and sudo poff.
