Just wondering on how to create a PPPoE dialup connection ?..Its very simple...:). Follow the steps below to get on ur Broadband pppOe connection in Linux.

1.> On the desktop, Right click on the network icon (whether connected or not connected). Select "Edit Network Connections" option.

2.> This Opens up a Network Connections manager Window, where you will have to Select "DSL" tab, and the press "Add" button to add a new connection.

3.> Here you have to give name to ur connection like, i have given Fivenet, You may give it MTNL, Hathway or any other, USERNAME, PASSWORD, SERVICE-NAME(IF GIVEN). Also Tick the options "For all users" and "Connect automatically". Now select "WIRED" tab.

3.a> Open Terminal, Type "ifconfig" (w/o quotes) and hit enter. Now look for "eth0" index, and copy the mac-id, For example, 00:11:22:33:44:55
