Setting up the PPPoE connection

Setting up the PPPoE Internet connection was really simple with the pppoeconf command line utility.

I had to stop using Network Manager for the PPPoE because it would not re-connect whenever the PPPoE connection failed.

pppoeconf adds the following lines into /etc/network/interfaces automatically:

iface ppp0 inet ppp
provider ppp0

auto ppp0

auto dsl-provider
iface dsl-provider inet ppp
pre-up /sbin/ifconfig eth0 up # line maintained by pppoeconf
provider dsl-provider

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet manual
