Could you tell what you did?
What does 'time out' mean?

If you are talking about connections timing out check your network settings, you will probably have to change the netmask or the broadcast address.

here is my step configuring adsl . those in <xx> are my input

bash-3.00# adsl-setup
>>> Enter your PPPoE user name : <enter myusername>

>>> Enter the Ethernet interface connected to the ADSL modem
(default eth0): <eth0>

Do you want the link to come up on demand, or stay up continuously?
If you want it to come up on demand, enter the idle time in seconds
after which the link should be dropped. If you want the link to
stay up permanently, enter 'no' (two letters, lower-case.) <no>

NOTE: Demand-activated links do not interact well with dynamic IP
addresses. You may have some problems with demand-activated links.
>>> Enter the demand value (default no): <no>

Please enter the IP address of your ISP's primary DNS server.
If your ISP claims that 'the server will provide DNS addresses',
enter 'server' (all lower-case) here.
If you just press enter, I will assume you know what you are^M
doing and not modify your DNS setup.
>>> Enter the DNS information here: <server>

>>> Please enter your PPPoE password: <mypassword>
>>> Please re-enter your PPPoE password: <mypassword>

Please choose the firewall rules to use. Note that these rules are
very basic. You are strongly encouraged to use a more sophisticated
firewall setup; however, these will provide basic security. If you
are running any servers on your machine, you must choose 'NONE' and
set up firewalling yourself. Otherwise, the firewall rules will deny
access to all standard servers like Web, e-mail, ftp, etc. If you
are using SSH, the rules will block outgoing SSH connections which
allocate a privileged source port.

The firewall choices are:
>>> Choose a type of firewall (0-2): 1

Try this:
ifdown eth0

You can not establish an ADSL connection if eth0 is already configured for an IP.
