connect to Internet: Enable your DSL / ppp / pppoe connection in Ubuntu

Wanna connect to internet with the dsl / ppp / pppoe connection in Ubuntu? I found it actually quite easy, easier than connecting from windows.

1. Open up a terminal and run the command:
sudo pppoeconf

It'll open up a new window and it'll search for a connection. If it finds any, it'll ask you for username and password in subsequent windows. REMEMBER! the password is written in simple textmode therefore it is visible when you are typing! So, look back and see who's watching from your back. :)

2. Now your connection is set.

3. Whenever you want to CONNECT, just run the command:
sudo pon dsl-provider

Don't close the terminal, minimize it while you're doing other things.

4. If you want to DISCONNECT:
sudo poff

In case you opened more than 1 connection, run this command to close them all:
sudo poff -a

5. Remember, after setting the username and password once, you dont need to set them all the time unless you want to change them completely.
