Hi, I'm new to Linux and I've read all I've found about configuring an
ADSL connection, but still can't connect to the net.
I don't read german, so I guessed most of the HOWTO about PPPOE.
I also read the list archives, but everywhere it says that configuring
an running pppoe (rp-ppoe) is enough.
I've configure it (running pppoe-setup, and manually following the
HOWTO) but when I run pppoe-start all I get is a TIMEOUT. The modem
gets his 10/100M light green but nothing else happends.
Have try different user names, different net cards.
Any help will be great (remember I'm new to Linux...).
Thanks a lot.

The modem needs to get its ADSL light on too. Nothing will happen while the
ADSL light is off.
However the ADSL light being ON still does not guarantee a connection. Contact
your ADSL provider and ask them to double-check your account.
